Pre-payment meters

Comment 15th July 2010

Pre-payment gas and electricity meters should not have any facility allowing the build up of debts that are likely to be passed on to the next occupier.  Standing charges should be suspended for any period during which there is no credit on the meter. 

Why does this matter?

Necessary to protect incoming tenants of rented property.

Obtaining a new gas supply free of the previous occupier’s debt is very difficult, involving long delays and numerous phone calls to numbers that are always busy.

A new occupier should be able to take over a gas or electricity supply without delay or formality and without responsibility for someone else’s debt.
