My tenant has built up a huge electricity bill and the company has finally caught up with her. She claims to have been living in the property for just a few months (having fraudulently altered her tenancy agreement) but she has actually been there two and a half years. Both the lettings agent and I have the appropriate evidence to prove this.
The electricity company wish to install a pre-pay meter in the property. If she then moves out, will I be left with the outstanding debt? I am seriously considering giving her the two months notice to move out. Could I get saddled with a meter with thousands of pounds of debt on it? Would this be the case if she moves out?
