Section 11: rights of tenants in relation to metering

28.Section 11 relates to the rights given by section 6 in relation to metering. This section helps certain tenants, who might otherwise be prevented from exercising their entitlement to pay by reference to volume by conditions in their tenancy agreements. Section 11 provides that no terms of any tenancy agreement of the types specified shall be regarded as restricting the tenant’s rights (to give a measured charges notice and to consent to charges being fixed on a measured basis), preventing the consequent installation or connection of a meter or requiring consent to be obtained in relation to such installation or connection. The tenancies specified are those which are not fixed term tenancies for a term of less than six months.
