Hi, just a quick question guys.
I moved into an apartment (used to live in a house though, still new to the whole strata and building management thing) with a basic meter - signed up for a new gas plan recently, and the retailer told me that an 'actual meter reading' was performed on the 21 October. I know for a fact that my gas meter is inside the apartment (with the same meter number as the one on the gas plan), but no-one came to check it, I was home all day.
Are there such things as… I don't know, meters that can be read from outside the apartment (say, in a common meter room), that are connected to the same 'line' as the one in the apartment? And if so, wouldn't it have a different meter number (since the one matching in the contract is the one inside the apartment). Not sure if relevant, there is a locked meter room in the common area, but I thought that was just for the electricity readings, could be mistaken.
So, not sure if an actual meter reading was performed, despite what I've been told by the retailer. Interested in any thoughts.
