: Hello,
: I rented a condominium in Richmond,Va with a fireplace. The realtor will not provide propane for the fireplace and says I must fill the tank before they will call a technician to make it work. Is this normal or a violation of the lease? Thanks.

is the fireplace the only source of heat for the condo? are the utilities included in the rent? if both of the above are *yes*, then, the landlord should be supplying the propane. if there is another source of heat, then the fireplace is more or less 'decorative', and it's use is up to you.
if the fireplace is the only source of heat, and the tenant is supposed to pay for utilities, then you are responsible for the propane. as far as 'making it work', that would be on the landlord, but, if there's no propane, there's no use in even trying to make it work, because it won't. make sense?
