Brit in Poland - House bought and things are moving smoothly so far... but I have a couple of questions!

4 May 2015 #1
Hi Forum Go'ers!

I am new to this forum and I have been searching the internet for some somebody who is in the same position as myself.

And due to the britishinpoland website being closed down I am drawing at straws to find a depository of knowledge!

My wife (understands Polish but can't speak that well) and I (barely any Polish knowledge) have recently purchased a brand new house (they call it an apartment as they are built in a row of four) in Gdansk and everything has been smooth sailing so far.

We have found a good sworn translator for all of our notary requirements and although it took a couple of weeks we have found a decorator/builder to start finishing off the interior of our house.

And this is when we got a out of the blue e-mail from our developers notifying us that they want to switch over the ownership of the gas supplier into our name. (They only gave me 7 working day's notice and I can't get the time off work to fly over there on a week day.)

My wife has e-mailed them to see if we can postpone the sign over but I have a feeling this isn't going to happen... so my questions are as follows -

1. If we miss the deadline and I have to reconnect this service ... how hard will this be? (I understand that it will cost around 150zl to reconnect). Will I have the same situation with Water & Gas?

2. Once I have registered my home address will the PEZEL arrive automatically? My wife tells me this is soon to be redundant so maybe a waste of time.

3. How easy will it be to sign up for broadband, tv and mobile phone services as a foreigner?

4. How important is it that I am registered before I do some of the above? What can I do with and without it is maybe a better question.

Thanks for taking your time to read this and any responses are appreciated.

Get someone over there to write down exactly the meter readings for gas, water, electricity and get the papers signed and dated as being correct.
