Hello! My name is ***** ***** I'll be the Expert assisting you today. So, the gas is hooked up to your house right now, but not where the gas company wants it, correct? Or is it not hooked up at all yet?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
not hooked up
Real Estate Lawyer: Legal Expert Justin, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

What reason have they given for not wanting you to hook it up closer to your house? Do you have a contractor who can hook it up where you want it, or would the gas company have to do it?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
