Boilers - Change my address

How does Resolver work?

Explains your rights to you

You'll find no legal jargon in our simple, comprehensive consumer rights sections. Our guidance is tailored specifically for every type of issue.

Helps you prepare your emails

We provide a wide range of flexible email templates for you to adapt to your needs – just slot in the specific details for your case, and in a few short clicks your issue will be ready to go.

Creates a case file for you

Your case file is a secure online location for all important documents regarding your issue. You can upload photos, tickets, copies of receipts or external emails from before you raised your issue with Resolver.

Lets you record all your communications

One of the most important aspects of a complicated issue is keeping a record of all your correspondence regarding the complaint – Resolver does this for you automatically.

Lets you know when to escalate your complaint

If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.

Based on our experience to date, if you want to change any personal details, such as your address, resolver recommends that you contact your supplier, and inform them of the change as soon as possible. Keep a note of who you speak to and the outcome of your conversation or email. If you are moving home, resolver recommends that you contact your supplier, and inform them of the change as soon as possible (at least two working days before you move), along with the date you move. If you wish to continue using them as your energy provider, they will issue you with a final bill for your old address and set up a new account for your new address. If you decide to switch providers, remember to cancel any direct debit arrangements once your final bill has been paid. When you move into a new house, you will be automatically contracted to the supplier that was used at the property by the previous owners. You should take a meter reading as soon as you move in and find out who your supplier is. If the previous owners have not left details, you can find out who supplies the gas by phoning the meter number helpline on 0870 608 1524 and the electricity by phoning the local electricity distribution company (see phonebook for details). If you do not wish to stay with this supplier (e.g wish to remain with your old supplier, or to take up a new supplier) you should contact the supplier you wish to move to from your new address and ask them to change your supplier.

Resolver recommends that you submit your request in writing and we can assist you in all aspects of your query; formulating letters, recording dialogues, and reminding you when and who to escalate to.
Remember that this is a good time to check that you are on the best energy tariff for your needs using a price comparison website, so it’s a good idea to take some time to compare prices and switch providers if you find a better deal. As you are moving into a new home you may not have the full details for the energy use in the home so resolver recommends you ask the current owner/occupier for the energy usage via your solicitor or the estate agent.

Price comparison websites often have tools that help you estimate your energy usage and to help you make an informed decision.
