What should the person do if they keep receiving bills from the previous tenant's energy company?
Hi, I need some advice please. I live in a housing association property, I moved here in September 2021 after doing a mutual exchange. The previous tenants used Energy Company 1 (ec1) as their fuel supplier, and I was with Energy Company 2 (ec2). Weeks before moving we both put in a change of circumstances and gave the new addresses. They took ec1 with them, I took ec2 with me. I have been making my payments to ec2, never missed a single one and they have been billing me however ec1 have now sent me a bill but addressed to my housing association. I spoke to ec1 and told them they're not the supplier here, he tried to make me phone various people and I said "no, it's your mistake. I'm not running around after you cleaning it up" to which he agreed and said no more letters would be sent. I also emailed my HA and showed them the letters plus proof I have been paying ec2. Today I had a default notice through from ec1 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ Where do I go from here? Thanks

Nq did you inform EC2 of the address change with meter readings on moving in? Do you have bills for EC2 with current address. Then I would send EC1 a copy of these. Might be worth speaking to your own company too
