Setting up an Octopus Energy account in Kingston upon Thames, London

Here, let's focus on how to switch to a new supplier if you are moving to a new home in Kingston upon Thames.

Taking meter readings is the most important thing to do regarding energy if you want to have a smooth transition into your new home. Make sure you take a meter reading in both properties - one before you leave your previous property and one as you enter your new home. Having this information will allow you to dispute any errors made on your energy bill by your supplier. We know that there are more exciting things to do than taking meter readings as you move into a new home, but this is very important to ensure that you aren't overcharged. We recommend jotting down the numbers on the meter, as well as taking a photo for double proof. It you are moving into a rented property or your own place, then the process is almost the same. If you are renting, then your tenancy agreement will outline whether or not you are in charge of your energy supply, or whether this responsibility falls on your landlord. Make sure you know this information prior to moving in.

Another important step is letting your supplier know that you are moving home. They will need to know your new address if you intend to continue receiving your energy supply from them in particular. Alternatively, if you want to switch to a new supplier (which we recommend!) then you will need to end your contract. Be aware that if you are on a fixed contract then you might have to pay an exit fee, but this sometimes can't be avoided if you are moving home. If you don't know who your current supplier is, then head over to the Ofgem website or check a recent online or paper bill.

You will automatically be put on a default tariff when you first move into your new property. These tend to be more expensive, so make sure you start researching energy suppliers and their tariffs as soon as possible so you can switch over quickly and not overpay for your energy.
