As a landlord, you should check your TNB bill online regularly. It helps to keep track on your tenant’s monthly electricity consumption and the latest billing status.
Never assume the electricity supply will be terminated automatically when it exceeds your credit limit, where it suppose to be.
Else, please don’t be surprised to receive a termination notice in pink from Tenaga Nasional Berhad with an outstanding payment of thousands of ringgit. Take note!
Send a reminder notice to your tenant immediately whenever you realize the payment is overdue. This action is to ‘tell’ them your seriousness in running the rental property business; all the payment shall be made strictly on time, any late payment will not be tolerated.
Dear (tenant’s name)
We have not received payment for your last TNB bill, which is now past due. Please note that you are responsible for paying the utility bills in full and on time, and failure to do so constitute a violation of the tenancy agreement.
A copy of the TNB bill is included in this notice, to be paid immediately.
Kindly ignore this letter if the payment had been made.
