    Never paid a gas bill.

    Never paid a gas bill. 2nd Aug 06 at 6:26 PM
    A non-internet connected friend tells me he has never paid a gas bill. The property he bought had no gas supply He got a gas supply fitted into the property and then about twelve months later had a central heating system installed. He says as no one contacted him he just forgot about it until recently.

    If he contacted a supplier now would they bill him from the day he contacted them or for gas used since he started using it?

    He buried his head in the sand because he thinks they will bill him from day one however I don't think he will have to pay it as technically he hasn't run up the liability with anyone as he doesn't have a designated supplier.

    Someone else- in the pub( obviously)- told him the furthest back they can bill him is for three months.

    Does anybody know the definative answer?
