Legal Question

Asked on: 5/29/13, 4:36 am

Tenant moved in in Oct put the utilities in her boyfriend at the time name. He left and stopped paying. She had a high bill and could not negotiate with the utility company because the utilities were not in her name. I agreed to put the utilities in my name and she agreed to pay the payment plan of 193. I have given her a 14 day notice to quit for non payment. In the event she does not vacate can I shut off the gas and electric. I cant afford to pay for this if she does not pay rent. Is she breaking a verbal agreement.
