Moving house? Put energy at the top of your list and take the following steps.
Inform your energy supplier (at least a month in advance). They will explain the procedure to follow. Moving house may be a good time to change supplier.
To obtain the final bill for your old address, send the meter reading to your supplier.
How do you have the meters at your new address put in your name?
If you move, it is important to take the following points into account.
The first question you need to ask yourself when you move is: are you staying with your current energy supplier?
Your supplier can only send you the final bill when they have the meter readings. There are two possible scenarios here:
This is recommended if you know who the next occupier is to be. Note down your meter readings on the day you move and pass them on to your supplier by telephone, e-mail or on their website within seven calendar days.
To avoid disputes later on, it is best to fill in the removal form from Brugel giving the meter readings and have it signed by the new occupier or the owner. Keep this form in a safe place.

Before you move, request the EAN code of each gas and electricity supply point in your new home. If the owner or occupier is unable to give you these codes, contact Sibelga or search online for your EAN-code. Pass these EAN codes on to your (new?) energy supplier.
On the day you move in, note down the meter readings. Pass these readings on to your supplier by telephone, e-mail or on their website within seven calendar days.
To avoid disputes later on, it is also best to fill in the removal form and have it signed by the owner or the previous occupier. Keep this form in a safety place.
Have the meters opened again if they are closed/sealed. Contact Sibelga for this.
