Tenants not paying gas bill. I have recently found out that my tenants have not received/paid a gas bill since 2009. Initially registering with a gas company-I'm not sure which- they stopped receiving bills. I said they should find out why because they could end up receiving a very large bill. Two of the initial tenants are still there and others have been at the house for approximately 2 of the 8 years when the original tenancy began. It is in their tenancy contract that they pay the gas and electric bills. Do I have a responsibility to try and find out who supplies their gas and inform them of the situation and could I be liable in any way.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
If you can find out who supplies it that would be helpful.
But in any event you won't be liable. You are the Landlord.
The tenants will be responsible for the gas, not you.
There is no contract between you and the gas company
Therefore you can't be liable
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Happy to help
I asked them who the supplier was that they last had a bill from and they photocopied it for me. It is from Npower.
Ok. You could write to Npower. But in any event you wouldn't be liable.
Does that help?
Thank you, ***** ***** feedback for you now.
