Moving your home involves paperwork. Between the rental contracts or the deeds of the new apartment, we forget about another administrative procedure: energy contracts. What to do with those of the old home? And with the new ones? In this article we will tell you how to terminate your electricity and gas contracts if you move to Menorca.

Cancel or change the owner?

Two different circumstances can arise when terminating a contract and leaving a home. If it is a rental apartment, choosing to change the owner of natural gas and electricity will be the best option. In the event that it is unknown who will be the next tenant, the new owner may be the owner again. This management is free and takes between 15 and 20 days to be effective. The change of owner is available in all marketers, whether you have contracted Naturgy, Iberdrola or Holaluz. How to do it? Very easy. Through the customer area or the energy company's own website, indicating the data of the current owner and the new owner, as well as the supply data. In fact, this procedure is always carried out in the event of the death of the owner, sale of a home or premises and divorce.

On the other hand, there is the option of cutting off electricity and natural gas. What will this action entail? The supply will be stopped and to reactivate them they will have to be registered, which will imply a price for the next owner or tenant. It is common to terminate Endesa due to the death of the owner, as with other companies. It is recommended to do this procedure when the house is going to be empty for a long time, in this way, the owners will save themselves from paying the fixed term of the bills. To cancel EDP, Endesa or another company, you must contact a professional through a customer service channel and communicate this wish. As we have already mentioned, although unsubscribing is free, registering is not. So we have to study if it is economical for us to do so.

An important aspect to take into account is whether there is any commitment to stay in the electricity and gas contracts. If a change of owner is made, the new manager will inherit the commitment, but if the marketer is changed or the supply is canceled, a penalty will have to be paid. Also, it is not possible to rescind a contract with debts.

Tips when hiring again

Once the procedures for the electricity and gas of the old house have been resolved, it will be necessary to consider those of the new one. We give you several tips to choose the rates that will help you save:

  • Define the energy needs of the home. Knowing consumption habits will help us find rates that are more suitable for us. For example, if we consume more at night, an hourly discrimination rate with the cheapest kWh price in that band will be perfect.
  • Use a price comparator: when we already know which modality suits us, we can use a offers comparator to see which companies currently have the best prices.

In this search, the consumer will have to do their part and find out how the energy market works, which is divided into two groups: regulated market and free market. More information on this can be found in this article.

All prices and details are subject to change without prior notice, including properties no longer being available. We have endeavored to make sure all the information is correct, however Portal Menorca cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions.
