Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: My apartment charged me $50 dollars a month because electricity was not set through an external account, even if they charged me through their own system, can they enforce this extra fine?

Answer: As a general rule, the charging of such fees depends on whether or not they were specified in a written rental agreement. You may wish to review your lease to see if what the landlord is doing is consistent with what the lease says they can do.
