As landlords, how can we protect our utility account?
We have received lots of gas and electricity bills from the lettings agent which made me mad.
I have no idea how our names got onto those accounts since the lettings agent guaranteed us the tenants would be responsible for the bill. The situation has escalated to the point that a debt collecting company is designated by the utility company to ask us to pay the bill. What should we do and can we change the account into tenants names in the future?
