I would requesat your own meter, and, it might tbe the law. If you want,
I might to it. hire a licensed contractor, to put a meter in for
your apartment. why not? You attempted to get a valid accounting in
writing from the lanlord and he refused. so put in your own meter
ducut it from your future rents.Ask the electrial contractors to
estimate how much you could have been overcharged in this situation, then
. have e new electrical system put in. also I think its safer to have
your own electrical line to your apartment without feeds going off it.

: Last week, my landlord charged us close to $300 dollars for our gas bill
: and has given us less than 7 days to pay it! We pay 17% of a shared meter
: (which I just found out is illegal). The bill is for service from December
: to the end of February. The "bill" is handwritten, she hasn't given us
: copies of the actual invoice (though she did for our electric).

: What do we do?
