How do I pay bills for a communal, district or heat pump heating system?

‚ÄčProperties with multiple residences together, such as blocks of flats, will sometimes have a communal or district heating system fitted. This means that all the flats are supplied with hot water from communal boilers, and the bill for heating is paid to the building  management.

Your building management will usually have an arrangement with a company to maintain and bill you for your use of the heating system, and they will inform them of the beginning of your occupancy. As with your other bills, you should receive an initial notice within the first month, and you will have a heat meter fitted in your property to record your usage.
