Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I'm renting a guest house and the landlady lives in the front house. I don't have my own utility meters, and she is harassing me about running my cooler. She is demanding I turn it off completely when I'm not here. I'm not allowed to run the pump to keep the pads wet. Even if I'm just going out for a short time. Do I have any legal standing?

Answer: If no written rental agreement exists which specifies what the landlord’s and the tenant’s specific rights and responsibilities are regarding the cooler, then it might be wise to contact an attorney to discuss your situation in more detail.
