My mum paid all her bills via direct debit - her bank accounts were closed in April & I presume that the executor advised the gas & electric companies that the property was empty & going to be sold. Obviously that was his job & not mine to do as executor. Only it seems he hasn’t. We have received a refund for the gas since nothing was used but the electricity bill is very high considering that no electrical items were used during this time apart from using lights - maximum of 2 with energy saving light bulbs in them in the earlier months & then no lights used during the summer months & then the property was empty. The electricity bill is £500 which seems very, very high. I have told the executor to ring them & he is saying can you ring them & I have said to him nope - you’re the executor, they don’t want to speak to me, do your job. Oh dear!
