I vaguely remember something about a rebate, Sofie - unfortunately, I don't know where I saw it either. >lol<

Thanks for all your replies. They're very helpful.

In my landlords words, I've been an 'exceptional' tenant but I'm hoping to move very shortly. I think you're right seegee.

Hi Roccoco
Im on a direct debit & my gas is high 77 a month & electric 40 a month but at the end of the year the companies contact you and say if your in credit or in debit.   In the past I have been in credit & got a nice surprise a lump sum of the credit just transferred back to me.    I try to make a habit of sending them a meter reading every month or so through their websites to keep them up to date with my usage. 
just worked out my gas is 17.77/week and Electric 9.24 so thats pretty reasonable for a 3 bedroom house!


the 120 grant you say I think is either a lump sum off your next bill or money towards the bill to insulate a property.

Good luck in getting a move
Monic

I too pay by direct debit, as i need to budget monthly, so this is the best option for me, My gas is 55 per month and electric 48 for a 2 bedroomed property, and that is with just me alone in it.  I think i may ring to review as my Son moved out last year and i am still paying the same.  I will try to get each payment down by 10 per month or even a fiver would help
