I am a relatively new landlady of a HMO which is divided into 4 self-contained flats. I pay the electricity bill for the whole building and my tenants purchase electricity cards from me to top up their meters. The meters are currently inside the flats which causes problems in taking regular meter readings. I also suspect that one of my tenants may be buying cheap cards elsewhere and as I can never get into his flat to take a meter reading I cannot compare the number of cards he has used against the number he has purchased from me.

I would like to take the meters out of the individual flats and site them in a communal area so that I can access them without having to enter my tenants flats. I also feel that this would deter the use of cards bought elsewhere.

Am I am entitled to move the meters, if so what I can do if my tenants object?
