    Requesting court documents relating to a payment meter

    Requesting court documents relating to a payment meter 5th Dec 17 at 11:10 PM
    So today a bunch of guys from edf turned up to fit a pre payment meter for gas. I was at work but on the phone to my partner. They refused to show him the warrant or how much was owed because it was in name but refused to tell us how we could get a copy of the warrant. Edf had gone to court despite telling me that they'd accepted my payment plan and sending a letter re court action the day before the warrant. Therefore I couldn't represent myself at court. There were no welfare checks prior to the warrant and I actually have asthma and arthritis which precludes a prepayment meter being fitted. They're claiming they carried out welfare checks 'by sight' today by looking at my partner. How can I get a copy of the warrant or court documents that they're refusing to show us and any suggestions on how to move forward?

    No warrant = no access.
    (You are entitled to see the court warrant that gives the people the right to access)

    If they will not leave, call the police.
    You may elect to call them anyway, as it sounds like some kind of scam.... especially if they are calling at 11 o'clock at night.

    Good luck!

    I have never heard of asthma and arthritis as a reason for not getting a PP meter fitted, unless it is a single person in the home that cannot access the meter. In that case the meter could be moved under the priority service register.
