My appartment complex recently red a 3rd party billing

Customer Question

My appartment complex recently hired a 3rd party billing agency for well... billing of course. It turns out they found discrepecies in the water billing. The complex was charging a flat rate, but this company is charging that plus consumption... again i understand. But how can they go back 6 months and make us pay what wasnt properly billed. I paid for my water, that should be a one time thing right ?

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.


Was there an agreement between you and the landlord in the written lease that you would actually pay the flat rate plus consumption?.


Are you saying that the new company just caught the billing mistake?
