Since we moved to our new house we get all the usual TV licensing rubbish. I’ve never had a TV licence because we don’t watch television “as it’s broadcast” and we don’t use the iPlayer. I literally don’t have a TV aerial.
Normally I ignore all the letters from them because in the past I’ve lived in a flat down a scary looking alley (where most of the time even the pizza guy wouldn’t deliver) so never worried about some contracted out faux civil servant.
I noticed a change in the most recent letter though because it says they will attend to see if we are watching TV or downloading TV illegally. How on earth could they prove if I was downloading TV illegally?
My understanding is very simple that to get a warrant you need cause and without access to my house you don’t have cause.
Does anyone here have any knowledge on the actual rights you have IF an “officer” shows up?
