Has anyone had a meter reader enter their house unlawfully?
Earlier this week an electricity meter reader entered my house through the back door after letting themselves through the gate, while myself and my wife were home, and she was having a shower in the next room, and both our cars were parked out the front (he had to walk around them to get inside).
Now our meter is not on a porch or anything like that. It is inside the house… you have to enter the back door and go into the laundry/kitchen area.
When I complained, their initial response has been that it was their policy to do this.
This makes me wonder how often they do this. Has anyone else here had this happen to them? I don’t quite understand how anyone could think that it is a good idea to have a policy of entering homes if the back door is unlocked.
