JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason. Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Does your lease say the tenant is liable for maintaining the pool?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The Landlord in my contract is responsible for the pool and a company comes each week To maintain the pool he needs a correct water level to maintain it. I'm tenant 80 years old French may I have to pay for him a lot of water each month for a pool I never use?

Thank you for your reply.

If the lease says the landlord is liable to maintain the pool, that includes filling it with water as necessary. If he is trying to charge you for the water for the pool, then that would be a breach of lease and grounds for you to sue the landlord for money damages for the cost of the water or to terminate the lease.

No the Landlord is at charge of the pool in my contract

You said payment error it's wrong because my Bank called me and said did you pay to you $5+$31+$39

Thank you for your reply.

I did say above that the landlord cannot charge you if the lease says the landlord is liable for the pool. Please reread what I stated above, perhaps our messages crossed paths.
