Prepaid Electricity service block by lawyers
Good day can you please tell me if it is legal for lawyers to instruct electricity service providers to block electricity to a rented unit. I have tried contacting these lawyers to make arrangements but they ignore my phone calls and emails. I came to find that it is a common thing and that is how these lawyers lay claim to the tenants deposits.
If the electricity was disconnected by the municipality, it would be legal. But if disconnected by the lawyers it is illegal. Since you cannot get hold of them telephonically, my suggestion is that you may consider visiting them at their offices.
