I WISH A CHANGE OF TENANCY.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
First, we wish to congratulate you on moving into your new business address.
Your landlord or letting agent will have provided you with a lease or a tenancy agreement, and nothing much else.
We can assist you at this stage to help your business.
New Businesses: We recommend you read carefully through your new lease/tenancy agreement; and locate the clause about utilities and who is liable for these costs. Once you have found this information, please get back in touch.
Experienced Businesses: A Supplier will require proof that you are a legitimate business due to FCA rules. For verification, they will require 'moving in' documents (shown below), a copy/photo of your latest meter reading, and the date you moved in. If you have details of the former tenant 'moving out,' this would help our administration.
Disclaimer: If you cannot your electricity or gas meter, immediately contact your landlord or letting agent. In instances where this has been removed, please get in touch via email@example.com, or call us on telephone number: 07383 990742.
WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
We will need to know:
Details of your preferred supplier(s)
Details of your preferred term (or length) of contract
Details of how you wish to make payment (i.e. payment on receipt, direct debit mandate, etc.,)
Details of any quotations you have received from a supplier or third-party consultant
From our experience, we often suggest a one-year fixed term, unless you are happy to align your tenancy or lease term with your energy contract(s).
WHAT OTHER DOCUMENTS WILL I NEED TO SIGN ?
IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, GET IN TOUCH

Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org;
Provide a voicemail on 07383 990742, with a clear message confirming your name, business, and a contactable telephone number in which to reach you.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT?
We will look to provide a quotation within 24 hours, by our digital services: a text message, digital media, or by email. It can take a supplier up to 14 days to process and validate the Change of Tenancy request.
CHANGE OF TENANCY PROCESS?
As a responsible company, we recommend you fully complete and return the Change of Tenancy (COT) form, and it is signed by an authorized person. If you only need assistance with the COT form process, we will charge a pre-administration fee (POA) for this administration.
