COMPLAINTS ABOUT DISPUTED BILLS
If you make a complaint disputing any amount on your bill, we won't disconnect your supply for not paying the disputed amount while we are investigating your complaint.
If you take your complaint to Utilities Disputes or TDR and we are advised of this, we won't disconnect your supply for not paying the disputed amount while your complaint is being considered.
Please note that you will still need to pay any undisputed amounts to avoid any action being taken by our credit department. Also, this does not stop us from disconnecting your supply for other reasons, as detailed in our terms and conditions.
Nothing in this process reduces or takes away any rights you may have under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993, or your right to make a claim to a court or disputes tribunal, or your right to refer your complaint to Utilities Disputes or TDR at any time.
