Following on from an earlier question about meter readings on rental properties. I'm about to complete on a house, and on that day I will be taking meter readings by photo etc. But the house has been left empty for a few months now, after the rental tenants moved out. If my meter readings don't match what the rental tenants recorded when they left, how will the difference be billed?
The current house owner is a company, will the utilities chase up with them? Or am I destined to forever receive letters addressed to 'the previous occupier'?
I'm assuming the utilities won't be expecting me to do the chasing?
