Legal Question

Asked on: 9/22/09, 3:28 pm

I live in Detroit, MI. I moved into a house where the lights and gas were already on, I called to have the service transferred to my name. Due to my own stupidity, I didnt follow through to make sure the service was transferred over to my name. Three weeks ago the uitlity company came and removed the meters from my home because the lights and gas were turned on illegally before I moved into the home, I was not aware that the utilities were on illegally. I take full responsibility for the usage since the time I have been living there. Do I have to pay rent to the landlord for the days that I did not have service? If I want to move will I be able to get my money I paid for prior months, due to the illegal utilities being on?
