Landlord Had Common Lights On My Meter

Recommended Posts

I just discovered that the common lights for the entrance hallway that are used by all the other tenants in building are wired to my meter.

The landlord had previously said this was not true - but if i kill our breaker , the lights go out ,

What is my recourse ? I've been in the flat for over a year and the lights in question also feature chandaliers with 10 bulbs ect , on constantly with

other tenants and guests in and out.

regards

If it's not true then a ficticious sparky who wasn't there couldn't disconnect the imaginary circuit.

I doubt the circuit is wired to your meter directly. It should be wired to a consumer unit for your protection. What circuit is it on? As a start, I'd kill that circuit when you are not there - you are quite entitled to. I take it your LL has all the correct safety certificates?

I don't mean directly - but it is going to my breaker box and meter - the LL does not have electrical certificates and has now scheduled a electrician

to come over immediately to do certificates since i informed him of my discovery .

The landlord should have a landlord supply meter for communal areas. Most don't bother as this an expense and the ground floor tenant(s) normally subsidises this without knowledge.
