ok so i rent a back room out with its own access. its similar to a studio except no kitchen sink. Anyway it has its own breaker box but they are attatched to the same meter as ours so we include the utilities with thier rent. They haven't paid their rent in 2 months. Can we leagally shut off their electricity for not paying us rent?
YES! Shut it off ASAP. Your tenant can use the additional money that you would be sued for. Also you would be adding to the ecomonic income of the tenants attorney. They could all use some help, so do it now!
