As a landlord I have just had new tenants move into my property. I informed scottish power that they had moved in, but have just had a phone call to say that as the last tenant has not paid their bill scottish power must now put a pre-payment meter in and if I dont give my consent they will get a warrant to do so. They also said they would stop me using an alternative supplier because of the debt. I still hold the previous tenants deposit, although it is not enough to cover the full debt left behind by the tenant it would cover about half. I have heard of companies accepting a 'settlement figure' - is there a particular department that I could offer this to, or do you have any suggestions as to what I could say that would persuade them to accept the settlement and therefore not put in a meter?

I know meters are not always evil, but I also have my property on the market to sell, and I feel a prepayment meter would put off potential buyers.

Many thanks for any help in advance - I see there is a scottish power rep on here, I can't PM him as I have only just registered, but if someone else could I'd appreciate it.

and wait for someone to check this

 

im fairly sure that if you can prove it was let out and theres no mention of you being liable for the services in the tenancy agreement then you might not need to pay this debt as its the tenants debt not yours and you have no liability for it

Hi, I am the ScottishPower company rep on CAG. As an general rule, if there is a formal tenancy agreement in place, then the debt is clearly the previous tenants and we will pursue them. I am happy to offer further advice about this particular case. If you can email details to Onlinecomplaints@scottishpower.com. I can look into it. Regards Gerry
