Previous Landlord claiming bills
I moved out of my previous apartment 7 months ago. Now the landlord is claiming bills that are not even in my name. He never registered the meter reading when I moved in or out of the apartment. 1st year in the apartment, I was thrown an insane bill that I paid (including consumption for whoever was there before me) and we were supposed to settle the difference (we never did). Now that I suggested to communicate the readings so it is properly calculated and I pay the difference I owe, he doesn't agree and says that I should claim the money I paid from the previous tenant. Have you encounter this previously? I am planning to go legal and sue his a** for harassment and for throwing me out of the apartment to move in himself without giving me appropriate notice and not returning the bank deposit.
Any thoughts you share are appreciated.
