Electricity and gas – what can a mobile or holiday park owner charge?

Electricity and gas – what can a mobile or holiday park owner charge?

The resale of electricity and gas is subject to a maximum resale price (“the MRP”) which is set by Ofgem. Since 1 January 2003 the maximum price at which electricity and gas can be resold is the same price as the reseller was charged by the supplier. This includes the costs of any standing charges billed by the supplier.

The MRP applies to all park owners who resell electricity and gas for domestic use. However there are circumstances where the MRP will not apply such as for the resale of LPG.

Where applicable the park owner must not charge more than the maximum resale price as where an overcharge is made a homeowner may be entitled to a refund.

Where a park owner seeks to recover the costs incurred due to administering his own contracts or maintaining his property this could be recovered through an administration charge. If you are detailing this cost on your electricity/gas bill it must feature separately from the recovery costs and have been agreed with the homeowners.

If you have any questions relating to the maximum resale price of electricity and gas contact the parks team on telephone 01392 207020 or email parks@tozers.co.uk

Do pensions count as assets when dealing with a divorce?

Posted on 22nd October 2020 in Family Law

Whether retirement is imminent or even some way off, pensions are still taken into consideration when dealing with assets on divorce, and can actually often be the largest asset to consider. Irrespective of who the pension belongs to, it is still an asset about which a court can make orders on divorce. This applies both ways, meaning each spouse will have a ‘claim’ against the other’s pension provision.
