I have just received demands for final balances, gas and electric, after moving out 4 years ago.

 

Firstly I did give final readings, as my ex LL was a problem, I also transferred my accounts to my new address, and still at the same address.

I can't remember if I got final bills from that long ago.

 

The demands I've received state they have tried contacting me several times, and that I have 28 days to pay or the will register defaults on my credit file!

 

Any advice, I have emailed a complaint to them.

send them an sar too.

 

make them prove they sent you the bills

if they didn't get them under back billing [12mts only] = £0!!

I've been going through my old emails, I never delete anything thankfully.

 

I have responses from British Gas about a complaint I made in 2014 re: these bills.

 

The resolve was to use my credit from different BG accounts to clear the two outstanding debts.

 

In their email they state the two bills 'exact amounts they are demanding' have been cleared and in fact have credit balances remaining.

Well now I have some ammunition, what a load of donuts.

Suggest you raise an urgent complaint and provide this information

Otherwise they will add defaults to your credit record and be slow to remove them.

Thank you unclebulgaria, I have already raised a complaint before I found this email, I've also sent an SAR. They have not responded yet, but I have a reference so I'm going to forward this onto them using that reference.

Can anyone advise further, I'm really struggling with this one.

British gas are not budging and stating their email from October 2014 is wrong.

That the accounts were never settled.

 

In the event where I found out that the bills were not cleared and closed as they had advised in 2014,

then now that they are chasing me after 4 years of nothing

can I defend it under the backbilling rule?

 

If it was their error they told me accounts were settled and closed, can they reopen them?

 

Still waiting on SAR response

Thanks andy, it's not standing charges or from the LL. The bills were correct and settled with credits from other accounts back in 2014. But now BG are denying they were settled.

typical BG. When you get the info you will ned to check it against any other data you ahve such as bank accounts to show payments ect as they are the worst at just completely redoing their figures rather than sending copies of existing stuff .

Npower do the same and I'm sure others atrent averse to "correcting" things after the event to fit in with their current guesswork
