We are one of four flats in a converted Victorian house in Glasgow. The electricity meters are housed outside in a wooden cupboard. This now rotten and will not be weather proof for much longer.

Who is responsible for the maintenance of the cupboard?

All help gratefully received!

Hi @Houtkop,

Meter boxes are considered part of the fabric of the property and as such they are the responsibility of the property owner to maintain. In a block of flats, this may fall to a management company, letting agent or landlord.

Hope this helps
