How to Transfer the Name on a Gas Bill

Step 1

Call your landlord and get the account number on the gas bill.

Step 2

Call the gas company's customer service line. Listen to the phone prompts to see if a specific option for bill transfers exists. Otherwise choose the option to speak with a customer service representative.

Step 3

Give the customer service rep the address and account number for the gas account. Give the rep your name, and your landlord's name if needed.

Step 4

Ask about any transfer fees. Some gas companies charge a fee to transfer accounts, and you may also be required to pay a security deposit. These charges are typically issued on the first gas bill.
