Can anyone tell me if they have had problems with their electricity or gas supplies? We have been with the same supplier for electricity for a number of years and have just had a big catchup bill after moving house which leaves us with about £350 owing. Of course they have just upped the direct debit which would be fine, but I realise this debt will have to be added to the bankruptcy. So will the gas. We moved to British Gas when we moved house in July but it has taken until 2 months ago to get it moved over. We very quickly moved back to original provider. Just as well, we received bill from BG and for what would have been £55 with original provider is £77 with BG. I can absolutely recommend moving from BG, their rates are so much higher.
Anyway, so now we will have a bill from British Gas which will have to be added, as we can't pay it (they have underestimated and due to their higher charges we're looking at around £150) and the electricity.
I realise if we can't bring the electric up to date (gas is due to move back next week) we will have to add it and then it is likely they will terminate our supply.
How are we meant to get utilities? Is this something people have a problem with? I would very much appreciate people's experiences.
