We had some tenants of a property, who moved out at the end of the tenancy. We revisited the property later and found that EDF had drilled out a lock and entered our property about ten days after the Tenants moved out and changed the meters. They were set up so that if any new tenants had come in they would have been paying off the old tenants bills of £3000 (yes three thousand pounds).
EDF have after some pressure changed the meters back to billing in arrears ones, enabling us to rent the property.
They say they had a warrant. I pointed out that the warrant would be addressed to the Tenant. They refuse to produce it. Of course they must have a right to enter my property – the tenants no longer were in possession. Its no good for them to have rights against the tenant under the warrant – they must have rights against us to allow entry. We have claimed damages in correspondence for trespass.
Anybody have a similar experience? With what result?
