New communal gas and electricity contract

Updated Bundle for paper determination as of 9 August 2022


We will be entering into a new contract (a Qualifying Long-Term Agreement) for communal gas and electricity supply to all Moat-owned properties. This contract will cover energy supply to communal indoor and outdoor areas, including estate lighting where applicable, but will not include your individual energy supply. 


We have written to all customers who contribute to communal, estate or utility charges explaining that to act quickly and secure the best possible prices, we would be making an application to bypass our usual Section 20 consultation. Our application for Dispensation to the First-Tier Tribunal has been submitted and Court Directions have been issued.

What happens next?

We are now legally obliged to make the Court documents of our application for Dispensation, along with the supporting documents and a copy of the Court Directions available to our customers. These documents can be found below:

Application Directions and Background

Moat from HM Courts and Tribunal Service

Signed Witness Statement

If you would like a hard copy of the above documents, please contact section20@moat.co.uk by 24 July 2022 and we will be happy to post them to you.

As we progress with our application, we will be posting additional documents here along with the Tribunal's final decision, which is likely to be uploaded on or after 29 July 2022.
