Another difficult week...

March 13th, 2009 at 07:32 am

So I went outside today to see a handy pink flyer on my door. Yup, water shutoff notice. Saying we owe $600!! WTH, I had no idea we owed so much!! I'm seriously going to start limiting our tenant's water usage or just jack his rent up insanely. (In our area landlords ALWAYS pay for water, btw. I know it doesn't work in most places like that, but here it does.) So I started freaking out, called the water authority and had to pay $200 in order to keep our water turned on. That's a massive $200 that was supposed to go to somewhere else.

UGH. I'm beyond stressed out and want to rip my hair out. Who knows how I'm going to make up that $$$ to pay the other bills....

    Gosh, that is terrible. Our water bill is $18 a month.

    I can't understand WHY water is so expensive here. We live right next to Lake Erie and Niagara Falls, just seems like it should be cheaper! Oh, it's also our sewer tax, or whatever it's called, but that's minimal. *sigh* I hate NYS.

    Sorry to hear that! How frustrating! Definitely charge the tenant!

    Did you ask the water company to come out and check for any leaks? That does sound insanely high, even for two homes/duplex.

  5. Amber Says:

    I was thinking that was extremely high, is this a complex with more than one unit?

    It's just a duplex. And I should mention that we haven't paid the water bill in a little bit : (
