You know there is an energy crisis when even the Prime Minister is urging people to switch from British Gas after yet another price hike. The deeper we get into winter the more likely it is we turn the thermostat up and leave the central heating on for longer. But how many tenants are wincing at the thought of the gas bill coming through? Now there is a free way for letting agents to help tenants manage the cost of utilities, via a free switching service from Everything Lettings. And for agents there's a referral fee for the recommendation.
Roy Fuller, Sales Director at Everything Lettings, says that offering tenants a free and useful service at a time when budgets are squeezed makes perfect sense. Energy bills are rising every year, just as our winters seem to be getting longer and colder. As well as helping tenants, lettings agents can boost their revenue by doing very little. This isn't a hard sell - just a verbal recommendation to tenants, which can result in an attractive referral fee."
Under Ofgem rules, if a tenant is paying the utility bills directly, they have the right to choose their own supplier and be able to switch freely in order to get the best deal. However, it's not always as straightforward as it sounds. Even David Cameron admitted "a lot of customers find it utterly baffling how many tariffs they have", when speaking about the complex pricing structure attached to energy supply.
The Everything Lettings free utility switching service for tenants removes the hassle of searching for the best deal online and understanding the complex nature of tariffs. It's a great perk that letting agents can recommend to tenants - a service that actually adds value. All the tenant has to do is call Everything Lettings and we'll do the rest. As the referring letting agent you'll be notified of the new providers' details and you'll also receive a referral fee as a way of thanks for the introduction.
