A Landlord’s Outstanding Electricity Bills Cannot Be Enforced On A Tenant – NERC

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has stated that a landlord’s outstanding electricity bills cannot be enforced on a tenant.

The agency in a tweet it shared on its Twitter page, urged Nigerians to report such landlords forcing them to pay outstanding electricity bills accumulated by previous tenant.

The agency wrote:

“A landlord’s outstanding electricity bills cannot be enforced on a tenant.

A judge recently ruled that the bills of a previous tenant cannot be enforced on a new customer.

Send us details if you are in such situations.
