Lease ended back on Sept 2013. As per the lease, if I wanted to move out I had 30 days (the whole September) to make changes. Also, if landlord wanted to make changes this was the time to do it. Nobody made any changes.
At some point later, the complex was sold and new management company moved in. They immediately hiked $20 bucks. Not too bad, I'm OK with that. I asked for a copy of the new lease stating the new rent, which I need for other things... they waited a few weeks. Then they give me a letter asking me to fill out an application. Applications cost money, and can get denied... so I talk to them because, I already applied and paid an application fee when I moved in last year. They said it was OK then. Some weeks later, they send new letter asking for the application to be filled out.
Today, as I'm looking at this application, filling it out and such, another letter arrived saying they will no longer include energy in the rent. Can they do this? Then another letter came in, an energy bill, and they ask me to change the energy service to my name, which will require a deposit for sure.
Back in Florida there was a government office to deal with this, and this kind of things where highly regulated. I've been looking for a similar thing in Arkansas, but my google-foo is failing.
PS: And the energy bill says it's $80 bucks. How can it be $80 bucks??? I have no washing machine, no dryer, heating is gas, kitchen is gas... I'm not using AC... I only have a computer and a light-bulb. :\
Rube is confused and infuriated.
844 KWh in 30 days for a PC and some lightbulbs? does it sound right?
