I live in a top floor flat with 2 other people, and there is a lower flat with 4. There is only one electric and gas meter between our two properties, and have been told that we have to set up an account with the other house to pay the bills.
The landlord has refused to split the meters into one for each house as it is not "economically viable".
I am worried that if the other people do not pay their share then our house will be liable to pay this. We were not told about this before signing our tenancy agreement and neither were the other house.
The lettings agents are unwilling to have the accounts in their name and for all of us to pay them directly.
What can we do? Is this legal or is there something that can be done, or do we have to deal with this? There is nothing in our contract about situations like this!
Can someone help?
