20VAC5-305-80. Request tests.

Upon request by a tenant, the owner will test the submetering or energy allocation equipment without charge to the tenant, provided that such test will not be made more frequently than once in 24 months for the same tenant. If testing of submetering or energy allocation equipment is requested by the tenant more frequently than once in 24 months, the owner may require a deposit. The amount of the deposit shall not exceed the out-of-pocket expenses associated with such a test. Said deposit will be refundable only if the percentage registration or accuracy of the equipment exceeds the limits established in 20VAC5-305-40 and 20VAC5-305-50 above.

The tenant, or his designated representative, may be present when the equipment is tested.

A written report of the results of the test will be made to the tenant within 10 working days after the completion of the test.
