I rented a garage space and on my lease it stated there was gas heat, so over the winter I purchased a gas heater and had it installed. When I called the gas company to have the service connected they told me there is no gas lines servicing the building, I then contacted my landlord about this and he said there is nothing he can do.
If the gas heat was material to the lease, you may be entitled to break the lease. Take the lease and any correspondence from the service company and the landlord regarding this issue to a local attorney for review. An attorney will likely charge you a nominal document review and consultation fee for this service.
If the facts are as alleged, you do have an issue with the landlord. You need to have the lease agreement reviewed by a landlord and tenant attorney. Have the attorney follow up with the landlord on your behalf.
You should contact your own attorney before deciding on a course of action.
