    I've just moved out of halls and into my new house in Leeds, with two housemates. At the moment we're all living in our family homes in different parts of the country, but I really want to get utilities sorted before we move in properly, i.e. full time.

    The previous tenants were using Scottish Power for electricity and gas, from whom I received a letter asking us to stay on. I presume the previous tenants cancelled the other utilities before leaving, not sure.

    However, I'm considering using Glide, because the girls I'm living with are not very well organized and I really don't want to have to chase them for payments or whataver...would be a bit awkward!

    Glide is basically a company that splits your bill equally for however many tenants there are, and which supplies electric, gas, water, TV license and broadband. (This is their site: http://www.glide.uk.com)

    I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with them, and if you would recommend it or not? It just seems so hassle-free, there must be a catch...I'm just not sure where!

    I'd really appreciate any advice, I want to get this done asap!
    Thanks

    Thanks so much for your help. We decided not to go for it in the end, it just seemed overly expensive. There are only 3 of us, so (although we are all quite disorganized) we also thought we'll not find it too hard to get it together, money-wise.
