Legal Question

Asked on: 5/22/13, 9:21 am

When I rented my Deerfield Beach, FL, apartment water was included in the lease. I've been here almost 4 years and the landlord now wants to charge for water. We did not renew the lease, so I guess we are on a month to month plan now. Even if she can change the terms of my original rental agreement, there are 3 units listed on 1 bill and only 1 water meter, so there is no way to determine how much of the water consumption is mine. I live alone and am gone much of the time. The man next door lives slone also. But our 3rd neighbor has 2-3 people there regularly and frequent company. Also, we never see the bill, which I assume varies from month to month. Can she legally charge me for something she is not even certain I am using?
