I have a friend who is a tenant and the contract is due for renewal soon. He is currently paying for his utilities via a meter card but wishes to pay by direct debit on a quarterly arrangement. He has asked the letting agent in the past if he could switch and was told that the landlord did not wish this.

Does anyone know if the landlord has the outright authority to deny the tenant this method of payment please?

I know that the tenant has the right to choose the utility provider but have no knowledge as to where he stands legally with regards to being forced to pay on a meter card? Can the landlord write a stipulation into his new Contract stating meter cards must only be used?
