Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
To be clear, it does not say anything about a charge in the agreement in relation to this please?
This is what I found in the agreement "the tenant agrees to: XXXXX XXXXX reconnection of water, gas (..) if disconnection results from any act or omission of the tenant or the tenants agents. the landlord is not responsible for any connection charges if the services are not currently connected."
OK - but this has not happened?
Just to highlight fireplace using gas cylinder. Ive order cylinder replacement by http://www.flogas.co.uk/ and provided them with receipt
flogas simply replaced filled cylinder
Yes. I understand.
when we gave keys back fireplace was connected in working order,
Its just changing one gas bottle for another, right?
Ok -well you dont have to pay it
Its absurd to think you have to pay them £60 every time you change a bottle.
What that clause refers to is if there is a disconnection or you tamper with the gas etc
So no, you dont have to pay
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
How can i convince them to not to charge me?
They can try and charge but you refuse to pay
Im convinced they will try to hold our depoit because of this
Yes but you can sue for that when you leave.
It simply can't be the case you are liable for a £60 for having a gas bottle changed
