I have moved into a property supplied by Scottish Power

If you have moved into a new property which is supplied by Scottish Power you may received letters addressed to the occupier, asking you to get in touch. The great news for you, as a home mover have no obligation to stay with the incumbent supplier.

So, what’s the problem?

As we know, you will either be on a fixed-rate tariff or a standard variable tariff.  When you move into a new property you will be automatically placed on a standard variable tariff which are notoriously more expensive.

That said, it’s important to get switched to a supplier that is in line with your preferences (ie, recommended supplier, 100% green, low-cost etc…).

You can look across the market with our home moving platform and once you have selected who you’d like your energy with that company will let Scottish Power.

Scottish Power change of tenancy

If there has been a change of tenancy within your property, either you (the letting agent/landlord) or the tenant can inform Scottish Power. If you would like the property to still be managed by Scottish Power (SP), you or the new tenant must then contact SP to provide the new tenants details so they can set-up the payments etc… 

If you so wish, you can actually complete the moving home process on this Portal on Scottish Power’s website.

When completing the change of tenancy you will need to provide the following information:

  • o The move-in date for your new tenant
  • o Forwarding information for the previous tenant so that SP are able to produce
