You can find out about the presence of debts on the official website of the gas distribution organization. And you can do this without being the owner of the home. Fill out an application indicating the branch of "Mosoblgaz", the address of the consumer of the service, personal account, personal data of the customer (full name, telephone, e-mail). In a few days, the necessary information will be sent by e-mail, and confirmation of the provision of the service will be reflected in the personal account of the gas distribution company.
ERC and Russian Post
These methods are rarely used to obtain information. But if they exist, then why not use them and find out the gas debt on the personal account? The main disadvantage is that both the ERC and the post office provide information only when visiting the departments of institutions in person and upon presenting a passport. A driver's license as an identity document is not suitable. There is also a high probability that you need to stand in line.
The operator is voiced the problem and given the number of the personal account. After entering it, the employee names the address to which the invoice is attached. If it is correct, then the personal account is named correctly. After providing the passport, the operator forms and issues a receipt.
What happens if you don't repay the debt?
Bills must always be paid. Late repayment may result in unpleasant consequences:
- Whenin the event of a debt, pen alties are first charged to the personal account. Their size depends on the duration of non-fulfillment of payment obligations by subscribers. The more time a person does not pay, the higher the amount.
- The supplier is legally en titled to recover the debt from the non-payer in court. According to his decision, as a rule, the debtor will be obliged to pay not only the debt, but also all legal costs within the time limits established by the court.
- In case of non-payment of the debt, a court decision seizes the accounts and property of a citizen who does not fulfill financial obligations.
- Delays for supplied gas are reflected in the credit history for 10 years. With such a "spot" it is problematic to take any loan, at least at low interest rates.
- Debtors cannot travel outside the country until the full repayment of debt obligations, regardless of whether there is a call abroad or a citizen wants to visit another country on his own.
- Some companies are taking a more drastic step - suspending gas supplies. The supplier can take such a step if the payer does not respond to debt notices within three months.
- The last resort is eviction. True, it applies only to those who rent housing and there are supporting documents for that.
According to the law, every citizen can restructure debt. In fact, not all debtors are met by service providers. If gas bills were not paid due to a careless attitude towards fulfilling theirfinancial obligations, then there can be no talk of any restructuring.
For a subscriber, the revision of debt obligations allows you to pay a large amount in small installments without additional pen alties. Companies, on the other hand, do not have any special benefits, so they only go forward if there is a good reason and documents confirming it.
Application for debt review must be submitted to the gas distribution company before it filed a lawsuit against the defaulter in court. But even if a lawsuit is open, the presence of papers confirming that the debt arose due to unforeseen circumstances can help reconcile the parties. After such a decision, the company may go for restructuring.
