electricity supply to apartments
The building management company says that it is not possible for the occupants of each apartment to choose their supplier, and are aportioning costs quarterly based on the electricity consumption of each apartment. The company is adding a 10% service charge for this as it says it is acting as a supplier, and "is legally able to do so". The bills for appartments vary hugely, and bills are incurred even when the distribution board is turned off and the apartments are vacant. However, the meters continue to turn.
The tenants are refusing to pay, and the management company is billing the landlord, refusing to enter into agreements with the tenants.
When I bought these I was not aware that this was the situation. If I had known, I would not have bought them.
What can I do to addres the problem? So far I have had to pay over £2000 in electricity costs which I have not been able to recalaim from my tenants.
