In August of 2000 I moved into a small A frame with a friend. In doing so I talked to the landlord who has a small farm behind our house. He said I could move in but I did not sign a lease and my friend had just gone to a month to month agreement. The rent was 375.00 and he said we had to pay for the electric for all of the property. When winter came our gas bill and our electric was sky high and I noticed he had flue pipes running out back. Basically he spliced off our gas meter to the farm in back to keep the animals warm through the long (almost 8 month) winter. I confronted him saying he did not inform me of this and he should pay his share of the bill. He laughed. He is also back there everyday and does not hesitate to wake us up on weekends to remind us to mow the yard and do other chores. I wonder what my rights are in this situation. He is running a business ( rabbits) that we're supporting!!! Advice Please!!



Call a city housing inspector and call the gas company, tell them abou the LL splicing into a gas line because is DANGEROUS! and maybe CRIMINAL!

And you landlord will probably evict you if you dont have a lease...but he is STEALING FROM YOU right?

Then you sue him in small claims court for all the electric and gas overcharges!
