Yesterday I found out my landlord recently put the electricity bill under my name even though I moved out at the end of January. He also backdated it until February 6, 2010, which was after I moved out. He never informed me of this decision or consulted me on it. There are three individuals living at the house whose name it could go under and the gas bill is still under his name. The electricity bill has a $900 balance on it as the people living there now have problems paying bills on time. To me this is a dirty way to get back at me for leaving but that is just speculation. I am still on the lease but am no longer living at the residence, I want to know if it is legal for him to do this.
Thank You!I actually called the electric company and cancelled the service. They said as long as the landlord brings in a current lease they can switch it over to the renter's name. However, the representative I was speaking to said he should not have put the bill under my name if I was not currently living there. I am working on finding my copy of my lease but I am VERY sure it was not outlined that the landlord can put the bill in the renters name at any point.
