I have five tenants in a HMO, recenty two left racking up the electricity bill leaving lights/heating on 24/7 then leaving not paying there share of the bill. (Tenants responsible for bill not Landlord) the bill is five time higher than normal. Now the remaining three are refusing to pay this bill. There want me the Landord to pay. We also have two new tenants in. The electricity company is about to cut off the supply.

Although I fully sympathize with the tenants, I can not allow the supply to be cut as this we cause all sorts of further problems and the new tenants are innocent of this. All tenants are up to date with rent.

Can anyboby advise on how to resolve this.
