Today, we want to share a “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota FL office.
Veterans Landlord Causes Water Shut Off
A veteran that was just released from the VA Hospital contacted us, explaining and documenting that his water bill is included in the monthly rent and then is to be paid by the landlord (though billed to the renter) – not an uncommon practice in Florida.
But the landlord failed to cover the water bill as required, and it was shut off. We assisted him on properly contacting the landlord, and paid the outstanding amount to promptly ensure his water.
