How to register your gas supply
Whether it is for a premises or for a home, if you do not have an existing gas supply, you will need to register for one. This situation can occur not only in new houses or premises but also in places where, for some reason, the supply was cut off and it has not been re-registered.
To request registration, the first thing you have to take into account is the circumstances of the home or premises in question.
Is it a new build in which there has never been a supply? Or is it an existing property that may have had a supply, but one that was cancelled? It is also possible that what you need is to Change Title Holder.
It is very important that you do not confuse registering with changing marketer since registrations are only needed when there was no previous supply.
You must be sure of your circumstances since the associated costs will be different.
Changing marketer involves changing from one company to another and it is a quick procedure, during which you will not be without gas for one moment.
On the other hand, to register a supply you have to have more information and assume some costs.
