I rented a house in Ohio. My landlord provided me a 60-day notice to vacate premises.
We had a "lease" but it expired Sept 30, 1998. So we are on a verbal month-to-month.
In the interim, the landlord decided to serve a 3-day notice to vacate. I have moved from
the property but still have some items to gather since I was unprepared to move that quickly.
I found some information on an attorney's web page that says a "simple interpretation of the Landlord-Tenant law
is that the Landlord is always responsible for the water utility bill," whether or not in a 4-unit building.
The utility bills are all in my name and I have been paying them. The landlord has June's rent check, but it is uncashed.
Am I liable to pay July's rent since he sent me an eviction notice July 21 and
specifically is he liable for the water (& trash removal) utilities I've been paying?
Please advise specifically. Thanks,
