    Electric Meters £1 coin Landlord setting rate too high

    Hi my landlord has set my and other tenants electric meters way over what his
    electric tarrif is, I want to know if there is anything that can be done about this?

    As far as i remember, the landlord cannot resell electric to you at a
    higher price than he paid for it.
    Others may quantify with the relevant information.

      I have been doing a bit of checking with the energy supplier and have obtained
      the current Tariff which is "Standard Variable" unit price £13.38 with a standing
      charge of 14p, I have checked my meter and it is set at 5.6 which equates to
      £17.86 unit price ?, the correct setting I believe should be 7.2 £13.89, should
      I inform him that I now have proof that my meter is set incorrectly, and request
      that he corrects it immediately ?

        Domestic usage

        The MRP provisions only apply to gas and electricity consumed for domestic purposes.


        The maximum amount landlords or “resellers” are permitted to charge for gas or electricity is the amount they have paid for it, plus VAT at the appropriate rate. If the existing energy supplier applies a standing charge this can be recovered on pro-rata basis according to the usage of all those supplied at a particular property or site.

            Thank you for this information, I will contact the landlord and request my meter
            is reset at the correct rate.

              Thank you for the info it is all relevant and my landlord will not be happy to
              see he could owe me money, not that I can be bothered to ask him for it.
