    Am I right......?

    I have a tenant that has decided not to move out despite a court order telling him to do so. He was supposed to be out Wednesday 15th. The block he lives in only has one electric service main so I sell the tenants tokens to use in sub meters.
    Now legally, he's not supposed to be there so I am right in assuming that I don’t have to sell him electric until I get a balliff in to turf him out?

    He has every legal right to be there until bailiff/hceo evict him. Court order does not end tenancy, only execution of order by Bailiff/hceo does that.

    Withholding electric or other utilities is harassment which landlords can and have been fined, got criminal record and gone to jail for.

    We do have British traditions of decency.

        Trust you copied council with s8 for arrears so he gets less/no help or rehousing and gave him no or a full, honest, reference.

        Cheers

              yes i think witholding electric will be classified as harassement and your goning to have to wait until the bailiffs come knocking on his door
