TNB Case Meter Tempering?
Welcome to our “Guardian of Law”, I am Lawyer Khoo. Recently, if we read newspapers, we will see people are talking about a lot of shophouses all operated by those people who do Bitcoin business. Then these shop or house owners, because they leased these real estate to these tenants to make bitcoins, suddenly the owner will received a summon from the (Tenaga Nasional Berhad) TNB that they stole electricity.
Ok, let’s give an example. Let’s say you are a homeowner today, and then you and this tenant signed a Tenancy Agreement on January 1, 2019. Then this Tenancy Agreement is for one year, from January 2019 to December 2019. Then the tenant will pay TNB electricity bills regularly every month in accordance with this Tenancy Agreement.
One day, for example, TNB will come to check the TNB meter of this shop in June 2019. Then he suspect you stealing electricity. So (TNB) it sent the Summons to the house owner. TNB said that the owner of the house had stolen electricity, so he sent this summon to the owner.
The owner must be taken aback. How is this possible? My tenant pays electricity fee every month. How could he steal electricity? What’s more, it is strange that the algorithm for this electricity bill is not calculated from January 1, 2019. It will go back to 2018, or 2017 or 2016. what is the reason? If I try to explain through this video, it is very, very difficult. But if you have encountered such a problem, you are welcome to make an appointment with our law firm and ask for further details.
Because everyone’s case is different. And everyone’s solution is different. But if you have encountered this incident of stealing electricity, don’t worry. The first thing if you are the owner, the first thing you have to do is to collect all the information. For example, tenancy agreement, this is the first very important thing. Second, all the letters from TNB to you, such as photos. If he said that someone tampered with your electric meter, he must have gone to your shop to take pictures. All photos, all letters must be ready. After receiving these letters, you are welcome to make an appointment with us. Let us help you solve this problem, thank you.
