My travails with installation of utilities and services continue… Southern Water required a meter reading. I had no idea where the meters are. Barclays Internet enrolment rejected both my new and old post code. Barclays stockbrokers required identity proof of identity as I am a new owner. The frustration with all of this is time. You spend half an hour on each attempt, you think you have done everything and a query results.
If you are a new owner you are a social pariah, a vagrant, an outcast. Nothing else matters except you recently have acquired a home. It is on that you are judged … or, more relevantly, not judged.
