Had a letter this week, no date on it and it looks like it came with post, saying Grosvenor Services are applying to the magistrates court on 19th Sept for a warrant of entry to install a prepayment meter.

 

We do owe EDF a fair whack.

I will take the blame for most of it but it has to be said EDF have failed to respond to calls and requests from me when the DD originally failed.

 

However,

I am not disputing that we owe the money but need time to pay it.

There is no way I want a pre-payment meter installed.

I will be at best divorced and possibly dead if OH finds out :(

(Slight over dramatisation - I am safe really)

 

I have not been contacted by EDF other than for meter readings,

so I didn't realise we were still not making any payments

- no excuse I know,

but just wanted to outline the scenario.

 

The letter says they have tried to gain entry previously,

but I have had no correspondence about this or seen any evidence to suggest this is true.

 

Could it be this letter they are referring to?

 

Is there anything I can do to avoid a pre-payment meter?

I don't have a lump sum but could probably clear the debt at 70-100 per month.

Do I call them or write?

 

Please be kind with replies,

I haven't been well,

I was incredibly stressed without this and I know it's (mainly) my own stupid fault :(

 

Thanks

£1800 on Elec and probably similar on gas.

 

I think I last tried to sort it out about 18 months ago and would have been making payments at that point.

It's all a bit vague

 

I think I contacted them to sort out some arrears and they wouldn't discuss them until I took a new tariff.

 

They then told me I had to sort tariff on web, and when I couldn't get it to go through, were going to investigate and come back to me.

 

I chased a few times and then forgot.

Letter only mentions electric.

I don't think you have much choice but to accept a pre-payment meter, given amount of arrears and that you are unable to pay a lump sum to get the balance below say £500.

 

You are going into winter with a large debt and the extra you pay will still leave a large amount owing by next Spring.

If you got the debt below £500 you could switch to a different energy suppliers,

 

Suggest you arrange for a convenient appointment for the meter to be changed and therefore forcing entry/changing a lock is not necessary.

Spoke to EDF. They were happy to accept 10% of total debt and 24 mth repayment plan to stop action!.

I was amazed and accepted their offer.Still can't believe it to be honest.

 

Thank you for your kind support and replies.
