I am looking for some advice from any gas safe registered engineers. E.On have started clobbering me for a standing charge on my gas line, even though I am not using it. The only way to stop the charge is to have the meter removed. They will "helpfully" do that for me for "around £87", or they suggested I call a gas safe engineer to remove it for me, then they will collect the meter for free. I contacted a couple of local engineers asking how much they would charge, and one has replied that he is not allowed to touch the meter. Is E.On talking bull-plop, and will I have to pay them, or do I simply need to contact a Gas Safe Engineer who is certified to remove the meter? Do I need a certificate after the removal, or is it a case of simply capping off the already closed valve? All advice is greatly welcomed.
