Hello my name is Alex and 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.
What is in your tenancy agreement regarding gas bills and production thereof please?
my contract does state that I am to pay £500 per month to cover gas and electricity being provided by the landlord to the pool, pool room and conservatory and that there would be a review of overall costs after a 6 month period.
sorry, I was hitting the wrong button
I am aware that the landlord is being awkward and vindictive as within the contract it also stated that my deposit was protected and even gave a registration number. after insisting several times that he had protected my deposit he finally conceded that he hadn't protected my deposit with DPS and as a consequence is now subject to court action
I suppose I am hoping that my argument is that he was choosing to use the excessive amount of gas required to reheat the pool several times during his chosen course of repair.
But are you paying £500 a month, or are you paying more than this please?
i pay £2000 per month rent and have paid £500 per month toward gas and electricity since occupation 1st August 2013. My account is also in good order with british gas for the rest of the house as I manage this privately.
Your contract says £500 a month for gas, but he now wants you to pay more?
my contract does refer to £500 per month as a contribution to gas but it was verbally said that it would be roughly £100 either side. until the pool was out of use and he began to repair and reheat (the pool remained out of use for the 10 week duration of repair) a precedent had been set previous months at around £300 per month based on what was being used
yes it dosnt expain his reason for the calculation tho
