The new tenant/owner may make arrangements to take over an account and avoid disconnection. This can be done by telephone, at the customer service centre, at the office in Strassen or online. The process is fairly quick, but an appointment should be made at least one week before moving.
Documents required are: passport or identity card and a debit/credit card to set up a direct debit (domiciliation).
To cancel an account, the tenant/owner should contact the electricity and gas supplier at least a week before moving and organise a final meter reading before the account is closed. This can be done online or by downloading the moving house form.
Bills are sent every two months and are calculated on an estimated consumption based on the previous year. Payment is made by direct debit (domiciliation) or bank transfer (virement).
Meter reading takes place once a year and the balance of the account is adjusted accordingly. In case of unusual consumption, an interim meter reading can be made by the provider or requested by the occupier. In case of absence, a postcard will be left in the letterbox indicating the next meter reading date and approximate time.
