Hi,I have just bought an apartment in Italy and
I have just bought an apartment in Italy and I am feeling a little lost and helpless.. I am not planning to move to Italy for another two or three years, so I would definitely need to avoid the consumption part of the utilities cost.
I now have to arrange my own contracts, but I know almost nothing about the providers and the way they charge for the services. I don't speak Italian either to fill in the Offerta forms, I was kindly asked for me and on my behalf by my lovely sellers. The Offers I have are from: Servizio Elettrico Nazionale and Enel for the gas supply. The electric company suggests that I should just change the name on the existing account, would cost 77Euro, and I have no clue what is the suggestion and the offer of the gas provider.
Could I please ask someone to explain to me the way the utility providers work? Or maybe there is an answer somewhere on the site? Are the companies I have offers from good? Shall I look for someone better/ cheaper? Will they work with me in English and online? I have a bank account in Italy to arrange a Direct Debit.
I will also have to arrange some renovation, but this will be the next challenge.
Thanks a lot in advance.
