          always worth a SAR in my opinion ... although I'm not sure how much info they'll hold on you

            Telephone recordings up to 6 months
            Written records - to hand up to 18 months, however all records are kept for 6 years before destroyed ( i.e if i was looking during a call I could go back 18 months before having to send for archived notes, all notes (including archived) are kept 6 years)

              slainte caragh Attached are copies of letters I sent & the one received, it addresses none of my concerns & by the looks of it is just a standard auto-letter. Npower_2018-01-09a.pdf Npower_2018-01-13a.pdf what would be your suggestion now, continue or wait & see, he maybe returning to the UK in June & could do with not having this as a welcome home.

                I would be tempted to send in a "prove it" letter. Say, the onus is on the company to prove that the meter was tampered with by him and what proof do you have? Say you dispute that the usage is your son's and that you cannot be held responsible for lack of maintainence/training of their engineers so therefore you dispute totally that your son is responsible and there will be no payment until unrefutable evidence of your son's wrongdoing is forthcoming.

                I would also be enquiring as to why there were no criminal proceedings against your son if they have evidence that he has tampered with the meter, as it is a criminal offence and carries a custodial sentence. (which I always think sounds like they stand you in custard but that's by the by!)

                If they can't provide the explanations than they have no proof the debt is his!

                  slainte caragh Sorry they are not saying my son did the bypassing, they are saying the previous tenant did the bypassing & my son only benefited from it unknowingly.

                    Then I would be saying "We are not responsible for you not maintaining YOUR property correctly."

                    The meter ultimately belongs to the supplier and it is their responsibilty to ensure it is safe and fit for purpose, if your son unwittingly benefitted from a bypassed meter, I would be demanding to know why this wasn't discovered sooner!
