Smart Meter Installation – thoughts please?

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

If the meter was inside the house would it be a benefit to have that isolation switch - I'm thinking of void periods and you could just switch it off to avoid the daily charge?
