water bill screw over

By leo libby

when i left my last apartment, i had not yet payed the current water bill. the landlord said to not worry about it that they would just pay it and take it out of the security deposit. 3 months later i’ve have just recieved a new bill from the water office showing that the old bill was not payed and that the new bill is from after i moved out. my old landlords will not return my calls and i dont know what to do. i was to contact the state of Nh, but i dont know who to call.

If your landlord isn’t responding to you- he probably will continue to ignore you. I would suggest paying the water bill. Its probably not worth it to try to get the landlord to follow-through with his verbal promise.

Not sure how much the water bill is for?? But to make a point I would file a complaint against your landlord. Even if the cost of the water is less than the $35 filing fee, I’d still do it to make a point.

You’re right you shouldn’t have to pay for the water if the landlord already agree pay for it.
