Excuses!

My propane bill is too high by Johnny Rangel (Steamboat Springs, CO) on March 4, 2011 @08:10

                              
My question is
My propane bill is too high (due to some kind of leak or
misinformation from the landlord).
Can sue him for the extra money that i had to pay?
The landlord lied to us about having to have the tank filled in the first place so that cost me $900 already.
What can I do legally?

Are you guessing that there is a leak or do you have actual knowledge of this?

And no, you can't sue him for the extra money you had to pay unless your landlord is stealing your propane.

Yes the only thing you can do is to call teh inspector and make sure everything is too code. If it is not then it is possible that you can sue the landlord for your extra costs. Otherwise you can do nothing.

Do you have the fact that propane tank was full in writing? If so you can sue for that.

If your LL lied, he could be liable.

Otherwise, close your windows and turn down the heat.

Are you paying the propane company for your gas or are you paying the landlord?

Maybe you just don't realize how much you're going through? Propane will keep you warm but it ain't cheap. Have them check the tank for a leak...my propane guy showed me how to do it myself with a little dish soap, look it up online. I would not automatically assume that there's a leak. It's been a cold winter, and that is not your LL's fault.

buy your own house, and then when heating costs more than you expect you can sue yourself
