People survived  for thousands of years long before these gas and electric suppliers existed. Even in the Dark Ages, people managed to keep themselves warm and cooked food in winter.

hi folks you can see my photos on facebook if want to check it out (cguest4@hotmail.com) and also the landlord does not allow non domestic appliances in the property ie camper stove and I usually eat in restraunts and use the computer in the library or at my mates house I like my life I have a ball
Your landlord has got some front! Its a camper stove, not a barbecue.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

so is my flat, I see them only once a year for the annual gas safety check....they are not entitled just to drop in when they like...unless there are pressing issues/complaints to be sorted, and even then its usually by appt'. so you can easily have a small gas stove

from the op:

"Mr Guest fell out with Eon over a bill in 2010. To resolve the problem, the firm entered his house while he was out and installed a prepayment meter using legal powers granted by the Warrant of Entry Act".

Right so are you still in debt or has some debt been put on the meter to be taken weekly? Even so thats not an issue really, ALL providers are RESPONSIBLE for their meters, unless the customer damages it, so, have YOU damaged your meter?

If not then there shouldn't be an issue unless you're holding something back? The C-A-B says:

"Remember, if your supplier doesn’t send an engineer to repair your prepayment meter within a set time period, you should be entitled to a compensation payment under the Guaranteed Standards Scheme"

and


If you report a problem with an electricity meter between 7am and 7pm on a working day, the supplier must send someone to repair or replace the meter within three hours of you reporting it.

At other times, the supplier must send someone within four hours.

If they don't and the meter turns out to be faulty, the supplier should pay you £22 compensation. This is called a guaranteed standard.

So go to the CAB or phone them, and start living normally again. Its a no brainer really..


Plus in all my life and at every place Ive lived you always get 3 meters, electric, gas and water. So if you have a prob with one meter, why arent you topping up the other meter? You cant really have 2 meters with same fault can you, and in light of the fact you MUST have individual meters.. why is the story only saying you have issues with one meter?

Lets say its the leccy meter, that STILL leaves you with a gas supply to heat and cook with doesn't it?
