    Yes, but if the landlord gets in first and evicts the tenant, the punishment should be 'Landlord is not allowed to re-let the property until all works done and signed off'. This could take ages and...

    sparkie,

    Hi, it is very important that 'you' take readings as and when the tenant vacates. It is important that you, the landlord, contacts the utility supplier and gives over your readings. ...
