Paying My Landlord's Gas Bill Last Year

Recommended Posts

From November 08 to 09, I lived in a cottage at the back of my landlord's residence.

I received gas bills from EDF in my name and to that property which I duly paid. I moved out in November 09.

Imagine my surprise when I received a bill in October 2010 at my current address for a year's worth of gas from British Gas for the previous address. Naturally, I assumed that British Gas were mistaken because I was with EDF but subsequent searches proved that I was with British Gas and EDF confirmed this.

It was a 'meter mix-up' and I had been paying gas for my landlord's property for that year. EDF offered a refund but repeatedly asked questions about my previous landlord's surname and address. Naturally, the refund took much longer than the time that British Gas were requiring their payment.

Utility companies are far keener these days to find a person to invoice. In previous times they wrote off bits here and there but now they are far more aggressive and intent on hitting someone with a bill. Even if its obvious its not you, they seem to think you have to supply the name and address of the owner of the debt. WTF
