Legal Question

Asked on: 5/31/13, 10:43 pm

I'm a college student so any apartment including utlities was a grate thing at the time. Our land lord had it sent up so so that we pay by semster whoxh was 1440 each and we both would have 55 a month to spend on water and electric so we assumed that 110.00 was the normal rate for the apartment. When it came move out time our landlord informed us that we owe her almost 700! In utlities we called the electric company and found out that the normal rate for that apartments is 110 a month alone in electric which means she didn't charge us enough in the first place to cover our bills. Also some terms like the apartment will be cleaned painted and carpets needing replaced will be before we move in and none of these terms were met now she is harassing us to pay her .Is it leagel for her to not allowe us enough money to cover utlities and expect us to pay her with a suprise bill at the end?
