Electricity Card Meter

I have received notice form a tenant who is leaving on 3rd June. I went around to the property to meet with the tenant to undertake a pre check out inspection. I discovered that despite it being forbidden in the tenancy agreement and also despite our conversations about this. The tenant has had a card meter fitted. I telephoned EON who said that the meter can only be replaced with a credit meter if I pay £51 and sign an ongoing indemnity for the supply of electricity for any subsequent tenants. The money isnt an issue but the indemnity is!

To say I'm not happy is an understatement. Has anyone any similar experience that I can draw upon? Having a card meter is a big turn off for the proffessional type of tenants that I usually attract to this type of property.
