Eon Next Warrant
Hope this is the right place
So for background - Eon electricty meter killed by storm 6 years ago, reported and inspected, put on a waiting list for replacement due to Asbestos. Over time they repeatedly send meter readers to read a blank meter that are increasingly aggressive. 2 years ago we write to the CEO and receive no reply. Want a new meter, dont want asshats banging on doors. Last 3 years, it seems that the people Eon send to inspect the meter for safety log the visit as "refused entry". There is no appointment, if you're not in, in the bath, in the garden you're a meter fiddler despite them already knowing the problem. Phone Eon each time after threatening subsequent letter who say, yes you still on the asbestos list.......
Fast forward to Sept this year and receive a letter saying impending Warrant to break into the house to see meter, something which has not been refused. They've already seen the damn thing many times. Phone Eon, warrant cancelled and visit from jack booted Eon Next squad again with no prior notice. Not allowed in this time due to vulnerable young adult but we take pictures and share for which they are happy. Told that the job of replacement not arduous after all and they will contact us with a 72 hour slot to replace it.
Yesterday received a call from a neighbour that the house is being broken into whilst we're away. It's Eon Next engineer, goon, trainee goon with a locksmith. Drive 2 hours and they're still there, shown warrant and told suck it up. Phone EoN who say that they have no details on a warrant being issued.
We had no idea a warrant was raised again and unlike last time no notice was given
I contact Birmingham magistrates to ask on what basis it was granted and how we could of contested it if we werent aware of it. Told that it was issued under "national guidelines" and for any other details we have to contact Eon as they have nothing other than the actual warrant document itself.
How can a legal document be raised without the right to contest and how can a court not provide details of the basis it was raised against. If its law that these are just auto issued its a scandal.
We have asked (via cit advice) for last 6 years of comms, awaiting this before going further
