Report the meter readings to your energy supplier

Het energieovernamedocument dient niet om de meterstanden aan je energieleverancier mee te delen. Neem telefonisch contact op met je leverancier op het moment van je verhuizing.

Gooi het energieovernamedocument niet weg! Het kan van pas komen als bewijs bij een geschil over de meterstanden.

Voordat je je woning verlaat  

Geef de meterstanden binnen 7 dagen na je verhuizing door aan je energieleverancier. Je leverancier zal op basis daarvan een eindafrekening opmaken en factureren. 

Voordat je je nieuwe woning betrekt 

Geef ten laatste op de verhuisdag je meterstanden door aan de energieleverancier die je voor je nieuwe adres hebt gekozen.

A tip: communicate your consumption readings promptly 

You are advised to communicate the readings from your old home within 7 days of your move. 

Informing your supplier promptly will avoid you having to pay for:

  • the consumption of the new occupant of your old address 
  • the consumption of the previous occupant of your current home.

Keep this timeframe in mind when you move

Moving home is an opportunity to check which energy supplier is the most advantageous. Compare the offers of gas and electricity suppliers in Brussels with the Brusim comparison tool.
