Gas Consultation 2020


Communal Heating Gas Procurement 2020

Are you a leaseholder or a tenant of First Choice Homes Oldham that benefits from heating provided by a communal boiler system?

If you are, it is likely that you pay a charge for the heating and hot water by the communal boiler.

First Choice Homes Oldham has applied to the First Tier Tribunal Property Chamber (Residential Property) for permission to dispense with the consultation requirements of S20 Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 concerning the renewal of the procurement contract for the supply of gas fuel to power these boilers.

The Tribunal has previously granted First Choice Homes Oldham dispensation and First Choice Homes Oldham entered into an agreement for the supply of gas. The current term for the gas supply ends on 31 May 2020 and it must be renewed for the period June 2020 to May 2023.

As the gas market price can fluctuate over a period, First Choice Homes Oldham wants to secure the best possible price available and lock this price in for the duration of the contract.

Therefore, First Choice Homes Oldham has applied to the First Tier Tribunal Property Chamber (Residential Property) for permission to dispense with the consultation requirements for the procurement of this contract only.
