6- Nepa Bills....unless you are moving in with your own private power source, it is very important to ascertain the payment status of PHCN meters on the building, before you move into your dream aprtment and find out that the past tenants have left you with inheritance of hundreds of thousands of naira in unpaid bills, and the PHCN office insists you have to service the debt if you wanna have light... in that situation, you may end up spending more on light bills than you even paid for the apartment, since PHCN hardly ever completely writes off debt smiley

Even if it's a card meter that the apartment uses, it's important you make sure the meter hasn't been bypassed. ..meaning light comes into the building but not reading on the meter.... the penalty for bypassing PHCN meters is 50k flat, before they even start calculating the amount of light used dubiously by the apartment's occupants sad
