The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has advised new tenants in Kano franchise to make electricity bills status part of their background checks before agreeing to any tenancy terms.

According to the management, in a  statement signed and issued to our correspondent by the company's Head of Corporate Communications  Ibrahim Sani Shawna, part of the background checks is to find out if such property  they are about to move into is duly approved by KEDCO to be debt-free.
 
The statement added that, "Not carrying out such electricity bills background check will mean any outstanding debt on the property will be borne by the new tenants and may results to disconnection if outstanding bills are not settled".

The advice is imperative based on the prevalence of cases of outstanding bills being heaped on new tenants which is not ideal and  in this regard, intending tenants are strongly advised to visit any KEDCO offices for proper guidance to avoid any embarrassing visits upon renting any properties.

Similarly, KEDCO further urged landlords to ensure outgoing tenants settle their outstanding electricity bills before moving out of their property so that new tenants are not made to pay for services they didn’t enjoy.
