  1. But debt collectors can get a right of entry warrant? So they must pass the warrant on to bailiffs to carry it out I take it? Also, I can’t get my head round the legislation on this – it sounds like they can enter your home when you’re not even in, is that right?! That’s horrifying! With regards to the faulty electric meter, do I tell them about this now or wait until they deal with the debt matter?

Can I write to someone at Ovo to stop this with immediate effect because I doubt my SAR will prompt them to do this automatically? Thank you

I had a DD set up with them at £198 a month. In March 2016, I cancelled the DD without telling them which I know I shouldn’t have done but I did this because it was becoming difficult to keep paying and my Ovo account was in credit of around £1500.
