What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New Hampshire
My landlord is paying for the heat in our apartment and in our lease he wrote that we are not allowed to have the heat past 70 degrees. Whatever, that is fine with me.
HOWEVER he just called me today and said that he wants us to set the heat to 60 degrees when we aren't home (so during the day) and if we are gone for longer than 2 hours, he wants it set to 62 degrees. He can't do this right?
Is this even legal if it HAD been in the lease??
I have cats that I would prefer not to have really cold all day and I don't think I should have to deal with bumping the heat down that far when I leave! Landlord lives below us so he is around frequently, although I know he can't just come in and check to see what heat we are at whenever he wants.
I can't find the laws on this for NH, can anyone help?
