UTILITA

Tuesday, 24th November, 2015

Cunninghame Properties are delighted to announce a partnership with UTILITA, one of Britain's leading suppliers of prepaid meters for gas and electricity.

No longer will those who are social housing residents be penalised for using prepayment meters at a far higher cost than those who have a choice and pay by direct debit.

This new smart metering system enables all electricity and gas top ups to be credited automatically, and enables a tenant to monitor their usage on a daily basis and see how much energy is being used and when.

Topping up is no longer in the dark ages - as topping up with a smart meter is quick and easy online, over the phone, by text message or at any PayPoint outlet, all at the touch of a button or the swipe of a card. No need to even go out in bad weather - simply top up from the comfort of your home.

A further benefit - the smart meter offers 10 of Emergency Credit so you should never lose power in the evening, at the weekend or bank holidays.

Landlords are on a win/win situation too. No longer will you be charged a daily standing charge by the utility company, provided of course there is no usage. In addition, no more bills for hefty top ups between tenancies.

What do I need to do as a Tenant or a Landlord?

Absolutely nothing is the short answer. Early in the New Year Utilita will commence the installations - it will take some time for all to be completed.

Is there a cost involved?

There is no cost at all to our tenants and a nominal administration charge of 25 for our landlords.

Can I opt out either as a Tenant or a Landlord?

Of course you can, but there is no reason that we can think of as to why you would want to.
