I'm currently renting a flat and have the bills setup under my name. The gas and electricity is supplied by Scottish Power, and I setup a direct debit with them of £56/month.
I'll be moving out at the end of a May (about a months time), and moving in with my parents for a bit so won't need the Scottish Power account anymore. Scottish Power have about £350 of mine, which is the amount they took using direct debit, but I never used.
How would I go about getting it back from them? Also, would it be worth switching from my direct debit to just paying for what I use for this last month? I thought that might make it easier to settle things at the end and cause less hassle when I actually move out.
Last time I rang them they really weren't clear in answering, and from the sound of it he said that I could cancel my direct debit, but I still might be charged it as well as the paying for just what I use. It made no sense to me at the time so I just left it as Direct Debit.
Thanks in advance for all help
