New EICR to cover any changes made by outgoing tenant?10:00 AM, 4th May 2021

I had an email this morning from one of my tenants asking how I felt about granting permission for the installation of a smart meter. The tenant wasn’t concerned either way, but he was just reaching out to see how I felt about this.
My initial thought was “fine by me”. However, I’d be interested to hear from other landlords and any views they might hold either way.
I can’t really see any negatives – I believe smart meters in the past used to cause issues when moving between suppliers, but I understand that this is now less of a problem.
The only apprehension I do have is I’ve read the odd story in the media about inexperienced engineers fitting them, and subsequent gas leaks.
Any contributions and viewpoints welcome
