Hopefully , NO readers are on those dreaded prepayment meters that first pass through the Landlord's meter ?

Those tend to go round like a catherine wheel when switching just one light on. For some , just putting the kettle on , and the meter is just a blur. Turn on another light and .... 999 fire brigade , hoping that the nearest station still open wull reach you in under a day ?

Very little out there for those renting with similar problems.

Some may not even know if their supply passes through the Landlord's meter first.

Always tricky given the landlord and tenant relationship.

What are their rights are in that event ? Local CAB will be able to help.

I will keep searching to find some answers.
