Hi all

to cut a long story short. Moved to a new build last year. Built in 2009 builder went bankrupt.

Housing association took over property.

Changed gas supply but couldn't do it as mpr no wasn't registered to the property called shipper who confirmed we had a crossed meter with another property over the road which was registered as a block of flats even though all are houses in cul de sac.

Ahipper confirmed that all gas used would be abolished and no bill would be issued. I have all the old bills in the builders name dating back to 2009. Now British gas have tried billing us from last year but the date does not tally to when we moved in and it has now been passed to a dca.

Any help on what can be done as hitting head against brick wall with this one?

Just to confirm, are British Gas chasing you for supplies made before you were the occupant?


Does any part of the bill relate to supplies made more than one year ago and for which they did not chase you at the time?


Have you paid for gas since you entered occupation?
