I am due to move into my first home on the 1st August. When do I need to start my switch with you? Now? Or the 1st August?
Also, do I need to contact the current supplier that the previous tenant is using?

You can start the switch now, if you wish. As it takes 17 days to complete the switch, you should be moved in by then .
You will still need to pay the current supplier from when you move in until you come on supply with PP.
Personally, I would wait till you move in, just incase something unexpected happens which affects your moving in .
Heres a link for you to have a look at:
Make sure you take readings on the 1st day you move in, so you only pay the old supplier for what you have used.
The old supplier will contact you with regards to any outstanding payment due.
Hope this helps
