: (when I moved in the landlord rolled the gas account over to my name
: from the previous tenants, I thought that this was nice of him.
: As long as there was a Zero (0) balance, No problem). After a year
: or so I noticed that the gas bill was getting higher. When I contacted
: the Gas Company they said that the Gas Dryer and water heater as well
: as my stove was apart of the bill. So when I went to basement to look
: into the matter I noticed that their was only one water heater.
: I had asked the landlord where are the water heaters for the other
: two apartments...he tap danced around the issue and pointed to the
: regular heaters(boilers) that provide heat. I believe I have
: been paying for Hot water for the other two apartments for over 4 yrs.
: You see he and his father had put in the pluming into this house before
: I moved in. My question is, what recourse do I have? Can I take him
: to Court for 2/3 s of the gas bill for my entire stay in this apartment?

Do your homework, get verification and call the gas/elec. co. I think they have laws agains that.
