Must I allow the utility company access to my rental unit on request of an investigation by a tenant after the lease expired? He received a judgement against him for deliquent rent, stayed just until eviction would take place. He closed the utility account and filed request for evidence of wiring tampering that would have put the water heater and hall way light on h/h circuit the same day . The tenant rented for five years without complaining or initiating an investigation. He might be trying to make me responsible for his past electric bill if the light and furness were on his circuit. The magistrate informed the tenant that I "do not have to do anything" re: his damage deposit unless he leaves a forwarding address. He did not. I have some damages, more due rent and a filthy apartment.
