These are crucial if you rented a house here - register for internet services (and landline), water and wastewater as well as electricity and gas suppliers. You can choose to pay it monthly, quarterly or annually, by cash, debit card or auto debit. I choose auto debit for all services since it is more convenient. For water and energy, I will make sure I submit the meter reading on time (online) so I only pay for whatever amount that we use.
There are websites which offer financial services comparison between various service providers (energy supplier, credit card, insurances, to name a few). This is one of the comparison services - GoCompare. Nazmi's favourite ad. Enjoy!
Once you have done the comparison and chose the most competitive rate, you just have to register online. They will call you to get personal information and payment details. Then you are good to go.
If the previous tenant subscribe to different supplier, dont worry, you could just switch. It just a phone call away.
