Moving Premises

At BES we know how stressful moving property can be...

We believe in treating our customers fairly, which is why we want you to know what information we’ll need, right from the start, to avoid creating any unwanted complications to the process.

Below we’ve set out our change of tenancy process and explained exactly what details we need to process any change on our records. This will ensure you’re only charged for the period you are responsible for a property.

Let us know about a change of tenancy (CoT) by completing and returning our Business Move form to

What information will you need to provide?

To protect customers and help us to process a change of tenancy as quickly and efficiently as possible, we need certain information. We may also attempt to verify Change of Tenancy requests via an outbound call to the business landline, or with the landlord of the premises. This additional due diligence is carried out as best practice and in order to safeguard customers from potentially fraudulent requests.

We’ve included a list of the items we may require to help us verify any change of occupancy. We may ask you for one, or a combination of, the following:

  • Copy of the new lease agreement for the property
  • Copy of the Business Rates for the property
  • Copy of the Public Liability Insurance for the property
  • Copy of your Identification (Passport or Driving License)
  • Meter reading(s) from the Change of Tenancy Date
  • Contact details including contact number for the Landlord of the property
  • Contact details including contact number for the outgoing or incoming tenant

Please send the above information to BES as soon as possible, so that we can process any change quickly and efficiently. If we do not receive the requested details within 14 days, we will suspend any further action until we hear back from you.
