What to do if I suspect my Tenant has tampered with the meter?

The tenants have the heatingvin at 30 degrees all the time even though they're not staying in the house. They've take him the prepayment meter out without permission and I think they're running up the bill with no intention to pay it. They may have already left. We are seeking a court order for eviction. They've also tampered with the electric meter which I've reported and have a £250 debt on a prepayment meter!

Sorry to hear this. Ring up OVO to make them aware of the possibility of meter tampering and they should do their own investigation urgently: 0330 303 5063. If you are given a court order reference number. Maybe provide this to OVO over the phone as well.

The court date is for eviction but can't ovo do something now?

@Nstomo This is why I suggested for you to call OVO. Unfortunately, I do not have the answers to this. But happy to provide recommendations.

Let us know how you get on
