Every summer I have to sort out the new names and contact details for my 120 plus students in all my HMO properties for the Gas, Water and Electric. Council tax is pretty easy as the University send these across to the council automatically.
The process I go through is checking who the utility provider is (students do switch during the year) then emailing the provider the new tenant details as well as the meter readings.
Every year there are issues, some providers saying they have not had the email, no new bills arrive for months requiring me to chase things up, utility companies trying to chase me for unpaid bills when the students try a fast one etc etc.
I know there are a few companies out there: utility warehouse etc that provide 1 single bill but in my experience the students are very wary of these companies.
What do other HMO landlords do?
Is this process a ton of hassle for everyone?
