She was the most unhelpful customer service person since the sewer people. And speaking of the sewer people, I got my final bill FINALLY. Those were the people that were arguing with me when I told them that the water company sent them a turn off notice on Saturday and they said that was impossible because they don't work on Saturday. I sent off the $12 check and that should be the last utility bill for the rental house. I was thinking that I just have to pay my car insurance bill and then the bill magically appeared in my email inbox. It isn't due until July 14th though.
And...I checked my bank account again and my rent money was there this morning! Yay! Having a rental house is great when it is rented and nothing is going wrong.
I receive direct deposit for one of my rentals and just love it. Wish all my tenants paid me electronically!
Your predicament with the gas company sounds familiar. I also have things set up where the utilities are supposed to be automatically switched over to my name, and more than once the service has remained on but I haven't gotten a bill. I guess tenants just don't care about their credit like they should.
Switching gears, what irks me is I've received warnings that a lien would be placed on a property because the sewer bill was not paid. Then I'm expected to provide proof that the tenant occupied the home by providing a copy of the lease. If the sewer bill isn't in my name, I don't understand why I have to prove anything!
Frugal Miser, I was paid in cash up until now. Although it was easy to take some out for my own wallet, I do not miss having to carry it to the bank to deposit. Direct deposit is great!
You are scaring me about the lien and utility bills. I didn't think about that! Yikes.
