Executing a warrant is not breaking in, that is why they get a warrant of access, and if necessary they can call upon the police to assist.
If at the end of the day for whatever reason they cannot access your property to fit a prepayment meter, they will simply disconnect your supply outside the property. From the best of my recollections there is a substantial charge to get the power reconnected if that happens in addition to clearing the debt..
As others have suggested the most practical solution is to contact the supplier and agree to have the prepayment meter fitted.
There really is nowhere else to go which will not exacerbate your situation further.
Hi, I'm just starting to draft a statement for your application but need some information:
Have you seen the court papers that were hidden from you ?
Are you able to download and print off the texts you got from the landlord regarding non protection of your deposit ?
Is the tenancy only in your name or joint names?
If we can get the eviction suspended are you able to pay rent while you look for another property?
Have you actually received the court order yet?
Slight up date, i have received a s45 counter notice (admitting claim)
This has not been signed by a natural person, its signed ** **** real estates ltd, in pen.
Would this be classes as a valid notice?
If they are granted a legal warrant it isn't breaking in nor trespass. I would go through the above again and take some of the information in as it seems like you aren't.
There is helpful advice above, as mentioned previously send an Income and Expense form in to see if you can work out manageable payments before it gets to the warrant stage.
At the end of the day you owe money for a service they have supplied and you have used, most of what there are doing is completely lawful it may be a bit immoral but that is business for these large corporations unfortunately.
I have been in the situation of owing money on utilities and being open and honest with them I managed to get a monthly amount set up to pay off the debt.
If you keep being dismissive with the help you are being offered you will find people may become less inclined to offer advise.
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
