How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
it depends on the arrangement. if your rent is including bills then the goverment were working on a law to make it so landlord have to pass on the money.
if you have a sub meter (so pay an electric bill but to your landlord) then it can be more complicated as your not automatically entitled at the moment to the 400
depending on if you landlord is on a comercial tarrif or not they might not even get it. or they might get one lot of 400 and have several tenants all on sub meters. if you see what i mean? in that situation you can ask (nicely) your landlord if they get the 400 and if they will be passing it on.
the government were working on something for people with sub meters or no direct energy supplier (like people in park homes) but i dont' think theres been any announcement yet. last i read they were 'working on it' so at least it doesn't sound like its been abandoned.
It's amazing how those with a can-do attitude and willingness to 'pitch in and work' get all the luck, isn't it?
Please consider buying some pet food and giving it to your local food bank collection or animal charity. Animals aren't to blame for the cost of living crisis.
You don't get the £400, you only get it if you have an electricity account with a supplier.
There has been talk for months about helping people who are in a situation like yours, but nothing has been done yet.
I'm in the same position as you, along with my two neighbours.
We live in 3 small cottages on our landlord's property, and we all have our own electric meters.
Our electric is supplied from the landlord's house via his meter.
The landlord gives us a bill regularly, according to our meters readings.
We have approached the landlord about the energy rebate. He's already being credited the monthly discount to his account. He said he is willing to split the discount between all four dwellings including his. I consider this very reasonable of course, but it doesn't really solve the issue, considering each of us are entitled to the whole energy rebate of £400. Not just a quarter of it.
If you hear anymore on this StevieEJ I would be very grateful if you could let me know.
You might want to be eligible, but as the scheme is written you are not.
