Looks like the neighbours forgot to pay the bill. The gas appears to have
been turned off. Went down to look at the boiler..looks okay. Power is there
as the water circulation pump is working.

'Course the bill is with e.on and they have been F**king us around for the past three months. No doubt they have been paid but messed up when the new tenants moved in and bills were taken over by the landlord. It took us three months to get it sorted. E.on are so crap.

and lilolelvis who has had his gas disconnected

Milan.

If it is the type of boiler with a pilot light then it could just be a dodgy thermocouple.

I assumed this was the next thrilling episode of the Wilmslow neighbours soap, where he'd hired a team of hitmen but then had second thoughts and called off the heat ..

Can't wait to find out what happens next. Will moving his car a metre down the road work? We'll know soon.

To be continued ..

I'm all warm inside. You actually remember my Passat misadventures. Though can't recall anything about potatos??? Which reminds me I've to apply roundup on the weekend to kill the weeds.

I've got heat. its only the neighbours that don't.

We got a bill from Eon for £1300 for a quarter for gas and electric - I left it in the capable hands of the wife!

Why does it matter to you if the neighbours paid the bill or not?

The vast majority of the building including toilets, kitchen, hallways etc. are heated by them. So while my office is okay..the rest of the building is cold as ice.

No sticker on the meter - though it is in the cellar. No other gas appliances in the building to check. Everything else is electric.

Boiler on the blink - possible. Some young lad is supposed to come round and check.
