I'm hoping someone may be able to tell me if I'm imagining things.

A long time ago I read that if a property is not connected to mains gas, but there has been a gas main in the street for over a certain amount of years, gas can be connected to the property free of charge.

I've searched, but with the forums being the size they are, it's a needle in a haystack. The original post recounted how some gas company employees were unaware of this but the writer eventually got his free connection.

I would be very grateful if anyone can advise me - even if it's a myth! Can you tell I'm keen to save over £600?
