Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help,you.
How is the energy bill devided up do you know?
what does your tenancy agreement say about billing and payments etc?
Do you know what this charge is?
ok. If the tenancy agreement says they must pay it and the charge from Switch2 is valid then the tenants have to pay it.
If not this could be breach of contract and grounds to give notice.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If it's to do with maintenance of the property then you have to pay it. If it's to do with maintenance of utility etc your tenant is liable.
Does that clarify?
Maintenance of property I think. The boiler itself is the responsibility of the Landlord.
