Setting up energy in a rented house : what’s the procedure ?

If you’ve embarked on the marriage journey, again congrats, it does not necessarily mean that you already have a house of your own. This is totally normal as most married couples start their new life (or continue it) in a rented house. Either way, you’ll need some energy! Literally.

Switch plan experts can advise on how to set up energy in a rented house.

If you are the one handling the utilities, it’s rather easy to set them up in your new home, even if it’s a rented house.
You’re going to have to choose a provider, and then subscribe to an offer. They will ask for basic information including:
– your detailed home address
– the date you need your energy to start working
– the type of meter that your property has
There are usually two types of meters, regular credit ones and prepayment ones.

What about the landlord?

You’re probably wondering, “what about my landlord in all this?” And you’re right to be wondering this legitimate question.
According to Switch Plan, UK regulations on rental properties are clear. You have the absolute right to decide the supplier that you want if you are the ones paying the bills.

In certain rare cases, if the landlord decides to take care of the bills (which might be part of the contract you signed when you signed the lease), then you should not worry about it. In that case you cannot switch suppliers or interfere in the subscriptions.
