The bills are in the Landlords name and I believe that I'm being overcharged. Landlord does not show
I am finding myself struggling with gas and electricity bills. I am in the 'priority' category but I don't have my name on the bills, so I'm paying direct to my Landlord and I believe that I'm being overcharged and secondly, I now cannot claim the Warm Home Discount because my name is not on the bill. My Landlord has never shown me the bills or given me a monthly statement of account.. When I contacted my previous supplier when I had my own bills at another address, I find that I'm paying double to this Landlord? I have spoken to them many times to no avail! With housing so difficult to find these days I worry about being too outspoken in case the landlord would evict me after the year which ends in January. I have always paid my rent and whatever the Landlords agent tells me to pay, because if I don't pay then I will be without electric and gas. It's very difficult to budget my finances and I can't afford the high bills, I cannot get the Warm Home discount, and I'm expected to pay almost the double of what I normally paid before I moved here. I had to move because my previous Landlord evicted me because he wanted to sell the flat?
