: The two unit property where I live has only one electricity meter.
: The property manager-the owner is abroad-says I will need to come to
: an agreement with the other tenant/s when they move in about splitting
: the bill.
: Should there be two meters-one for each unit?
: If not,should the bill be in my name-which it will be-should the bill go to the
: managers company and they bill each unit seperately?
: Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have exactly the same poblem, only in my case the landlord did not let me know
about it and I had to pay gas and electricity for the second unit as well. When
I realized that there was only one meter I asked her and she admitted that
the second unit is powered off of mine. She claims that she indented to tell
me but she had forgotten.

In addition, there are some utilities shared by the two units
(garage lights, washer, dryer) that are charged to my account as well.

What can I do about these. Can someone please help?


PS. I live in Houston, TX.
