Thanks. It is just another thing on the list of things to cost out so thought I would ask here. Didn't think to google before.
OK, really stupid question ... House is a repo with electricity meter (which had £1 on the meter!) Do we have to stay with whoever the supplier is (guessing there will be a clue on the meter because as it is a reposession you get no info at all!) or can we go with the cheapest supplier?
Thanks again for the replies (and thank you for not flaming me for posting a stupid question!)
It's just the same as a normal house which you've bought. You can do what you want with it. The fact that it's a repossession makes no difference, just be wary about debt collectors sending letters to the old owners. It must be so hard for them.
