Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Yes they do.
They have a Court Order giving entry
This means they can go in and put in a pre-pay meter
The warrant would have been granted by a Court.
The tenants would have been notified of the intention and invited to attend Court
Clearly they did not
So sadly you can not stop BG installing a meter
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
The tenant was notified but not invited to attend court. Would this have any bearing on matters. legally? Also, as the landlord I own the building and not the tenant. Surely British Gas must have some contact with the owner rather than just the tenant?
They would have been notified yes - but this was granted by a Court.
It makes no different as you are not the customer, the tenant is.
If the tenant leaves you can ask that it is changed back
But the Court has given a warrant of entry
I am sorry
Ok, many thanks for your help.
