Free as in forgotten

I've just realised that I haven't received a gas bill for over six months.  I shouldn't need to request a bill, but I'd rather do that than pay a lump sum when the supplier notices.

It's actually the second time this has happened to me. A few years ago, whilst house-sitting, I received no gas bills for a full year. The supplier didn't spot their error until the owners had been back for several months. We hadn't bothered to change the accounts, so I'd been paying bills in the owners' names. Since the owners were able to prove they'd been out of the country, and (unprompted) claimed they were no longer in contact with their house-sitter, the supplier had to write it off, and I had a year's free gas. Pity I cant do that again....


Would be wise to point out to your supplier that you're not being billed. Someone I know didn't get billed for 6 years and was then sent a demand for nearly 2000.
