    Npower debt, can I change supplier?

    Npower debt, can I change supplier? 27th Jul 12 at 11:49 AM

    This question may come accross as morally wrong but at the moment it seems like my only option.

    I have quite a few debts which at the moment I am finding difficult to pay due to delays in my ESA claim.

    I have been with Npower for a few years and fell behind on 2 months payments. This resulting with a payment plan being set up. All was well for some time but recently, I missed a payment. I was trying to catch up by paying 200 p/m as opposed to the agreed 178 p/m. Apparently Npower did not like this and has demanded that I pay the full amount of 1182.

    I really can not afford this as I have a limited income. I have tried to swap suppliers as my monthly payments to the new supplier would be 95 p/m which would enable me to pay Npower 105 p/m to clear the debt. Npower has blocked this move and are again demanding the full amount.

    Now, this is my question. As I live with my husband and his mum also lives here with us, could they apply for a new supplier or would they too be blocked? As his mum has only recently came to live with us, could she start a supply as a new resident?

    As I said, this may seem morally wrong but it really is the only thinh I can think of.

    Please someone, help me.
