    card operated meters

    Hi, is any one can tell me about card operated meters how it works, where to get and are they succesfull.


    I have I inherited a few after I had bought repossessed properties, they were clearly installed due to arrears I'm the past. They are more expensive than some of the cheaper deals, on saying that my tenants have never requested they be changed back. Eon were the provider in my case, however
    If you contact your existing utility provider and request a change they may charge you to replace the meter. I am told on threatening to move elsewhere the charge may be waived!

    Not sure how you deem success !


      Why are you looking to install these? Utility bills in the name of the tenant, with meter readings given at start and end of the tenancy means tenant is liable for all supplies used.


        Do you mean card meters that the utility companies install, or ones that the landlord installs, and then sell the cards?
        Allow tenants to protect their own deposits. I want free money when they do it wrong


          Landlord installs then sells the card


            I mean individual tenant

                Just to close of this thread : telephone hearing took place and after a lengthy hearing - the defendants application to set aside CCJ was dismissed and a CCJ with an instalment order was ordered by the Judge. He said he saw no real prospect of the defendant defending the claim, however to resolve he...

                Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

                Sarah's right of...

                Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

                I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

                There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
                That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

                About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

                I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

                I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

                No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.
