First things first, check that the previous occupier hasn’t turned off the power at the mains. If you don’t know how, or have any problems, give us a call on 0800 462 668.
If the house has been empty for a while the power may have been disconnected. In which case, we’ll reconnect you. You may have to pay a reconnection fee – see our fees and charges.
If the property has been disconnected for longer than 6 months, you’ll need to get a certificate of verification (COV) signed by a registered electrical inspector. This confirms that everything is in good working order and safe. Give the COV to our technician when they come to reconnect you.
