Utility Bills

Unless it has been agreed with your landlord in your contract that your rent is inclusive of all bills, you will be responsible for all utility costs for the duration of your tenancy.

Ensure that you contact each of the utility companies as soon as you move in with your details and opening meter readings, otherwise you could end up footing the bills of the previous residents.  Remember to contact gas, electricity and water suppliers.

Ensure all meter readings are witnessed (taking date marked photographs of the meters is a good idea).

Remember to provide final readings when you leave.
