Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
Can you provide me a bit more information? I'm presuming the lease provides that the tenant is responsible for the electric bill during the term of the lease...is that correct? Thanks.
Thanks for following up. There are two contractual relationships here...the one between the tenant and the electric company and then the one among tenants. As between the electric company and your son, your son is liable since he's on the bill. But, among the tenants, they have an agreement to each pay your portion. So, if your son pays more than his percentage share, then he has a claim against the other for the disproportionate amount paid.
Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your questions. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow up questions, please ask! If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service as OK, Good or Excellent (hopefully Good or Excellent). Otherwise, I receive no credit for assisting you today. I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating!
Thanks for clarifying. Then the same rules apply. Sorry...it takes me a bit to type your response. Thanks for your patience. The person on the bill is liable to the utility company and the tenants are each liable for their share, but only for the time they're there!
