I received the account from Thames Water, as I expected.... but surprisingly no new bill for the property I moved into.
So, just now I was there ringing up to ask if there was a problem when the lady told me that there is no active account for my property and it looks like the building is covered by a joint account (Which means its included in my rent!)
My old bill was £215 for the year (18 / month)... which may not seem like a lot, but it all adds up! Hell, that's half of what my new mobile phone bill will be.
All I need now is for lewisham council to come back and say I dont have to pay council tax and I'll be convinced I'm in a dreamworld ;-)
I'm going to speak to Tony the caretaker later on and confirm this is the case, but if so - wohoo my place is better value than I thought.
Once I get my new phone - new bank account, etc etc... I really need to work out my finances and how much money I have coming in / going out. So much is changing its hard to keep track of it all!
I've spoken to Tony, and he says that quarterly they will just come round with a bill. I'm going to hold onto my previous bill so I can demonstrate what I *was* paying in case its stupidly huge...but hopefully it'll be alright.
So, not quite as amazing as I thought.... but hey - it was nice to think so!
