  • Energy supplier debt enforcement

    I have been directed from a different board to post this here so apologies in advance if this is wrong. I am currently on a debt management plan which includes some energy supplier arrears. I am looking at going through the unenforceable agreement rote on loan an credit card debt and was wondering if I could do something similar with the energy suppliers. I had the following repl on the other board and was wondering if someone could clarity this


    "However it would be worth posting a seperate thread in the utilities section of the forum so the experts in this area can offer help. I know theres things and help that some utilities can offer. Also, if you didn't receive a bill for more than 12 months they're not allowed to bill you back longer than that....."

    thanks in advance

    You can't go down the unenforceability route with utility suppliers ( though I'm not an expert in this area).

    Have a look at some of the threads on this part of the forum to see what others have done.

    Depending on your situation there are schemes/grants to help with utility bills. I think the Turn2us website has details.

      Hi,

      I've found the utility companies that I've had to deal with to be very helpful with regard to spreading payments on arrears. I hadn't be billed for over 12 months on a leccy bill and in my case they only charged me for 12 months and spread that over a couple of years along side normal payments for new use

        Think I am being misunderstood here. I am not on benefits and my current energy bills,with a different supplier, are up to date.The ones in arrears are with companies who no longer supply my energy and are already on payment plans with these companies through my DMP. It is these companies( not my current supplier)that I was wondering whether there was anything that could be done to see whether they were now unenforceable

          I think the short answer is no. Utilities don't come under the CCA (1974)
