Couresty or not, There are other items, such as gas and electric in this park, added to the statement with the lot rent on it that I think I am entitled to have specific knowledge of because I use it. The lot rent is a given because you know what that amount is going to be from month to month, but the other items are different each month. I suppose PG&E and the telephone companies no longer need to provide you with a bill either. When I call park management, they can tell me whatever amount this wish to, no matter what the real bill is for the gas and electric. I have a problem with that strategy.
On the statement
gas is listed first
.....gas provides details of tells you how much you used and it varies depending on the season winter is usually more than in summer.
electric is listed next
.....electric provides details of how much you used and it varies too, but not as much as the gas does.
and the lot rent is listed last and that currently is 408.99 until October, when it goes up to 421.26.
I am trying to do what I can to protect myself by making copies of the checks before I place it in the park management office mailbox, but I feel that is insufficient. How do I prove what I owe, if anything, at any given time without a statement? I was using the statements to see if there was any way I could cut down on the gas and electric and I was very pleased with the results and now I have nothing to go by.
I think I will seek legal counsel on my own. Thank you!
