    Anyone have utility card prepay submeters ?

    I have recently purchased an HMO property with existing tenants. There are submeters to all the flats/ bedsits. The tenants pay for gas / electric using a prepay paper card with a metallic strip which they buy from me when they need a top up.

    I then pay the utility bills for the whole building.

    One of my ( problem ) tenants is not buying cards from me and is buying them online or from shops . Does any one have experience of this sort of thing with these prepay meters and how did they resolve it ? I am aware she is not an ideal tenant (!) and will deal with her via an eventual eviction, but want to try to stop it happening again with future tenants.

    For example, are sub meters which are prepaid via an online app by tenants harder for tenants to fiddle ?
    Or would it be easier if new tenants rent included the cost of, say, one utility card per week as part of the rental agreement ?
