Hello, I repossessed my student property to find the main house electricity supply meter, situated in a bedroom, had been changed to a prepayment meter without my knowledge.
I’ve renovated the house as an HMO (It’s in an Article 4 area), and now I want the utility company to return the credit meter.
They say NO, not until I pay off the unpaid £2,500+ of electricity used by the occupying tenants for the previous 5 years. They say they set up a deemed contract in my name 5 years earlier and that I am liable. They acknowledged they had my contact details on file but never used it to bill me or contact me. The property is now renovated but empty.
What can I do?
