Hello... I'm not sure how to post this, but here goes...

 

I believe I may be entitled to the Warm Home Discount. My home is rented and the gas & electricity is on a prepayment key.

 

The problem is that the accounts are in the landlord's name.

 

I contacted British Gas, but they say I'd need to change the accounts into my own name to apply for WHD.

 

Is this possible?

 

Mant thanks.

You need to speak to your landlord, it is correct it is the bill payer who receives the discount and I believe the applicable date for this winter was 8 July 2018 - so you may be too late anyway.

Depends on each company as of when they close applications, I applied to SSE in October and was accepted

British Gas should have been informed of your details by the LL......you are the Tenant and User responsible for energy usage.Get him to update the details and then request details about WHD....as advised you will have missed the boat for this year but get it set up for next time around.

Sorry if I have caused any problems over this.

The 8 July 2018 date is for those who currently get the Guarantee Credit part of Pension Credit and as long as they make contact by the given date - 28 February 2019 and your energy supplier or you who were with if you have changed and they were part of the scheme then you will get paid.

 

If you claim direct to the energy company because of a low income then you have to stay with that company until you get paid but there is a limit to the number of people they can help.

A tenant can update the details with a gas or electric supplier, doesn't need a LL to do it .

Yes.

 

Your paying for the G&E should be in your names away, Just ring BG or which ever supplier you choose and get the account transferred into your names.

 

The home warm discount is paid by a voucher with is applied to the pre payment keys when you top up...

 

Good luck,,,,

Hi

 

What does your Tenancy Agreement say about Utilities i.e. Gas/Electric/Water etc

 

Does the Landlord own the Meters and charge you a certain rate for usage?
