Politely decline if its included in your contract. Especially if they have no idea who is at fault lol... Its not just whomever lives in the entire building and everyone is to blame. I had some moron landlord try to squeeze money out of everyone having a repair guy come look at a light fixture which apparently only needed bulbs to be replaced. The guy tried to blame everyone else for not checking the bulbs and to pitch in. Same scenario here, not your fault nor your problem. If power does get disconnected for any reason you can contact BC hydro to have it turned back on. You might have to pay the bill however you can file a dispute and just have it deducted off subsequent months rent if it actually got to that point.tried talking with the new owner he said he had a electrician look into it tat doesn't fly with me id want the actual hydro company to look into this as it doesn't make sense as our habits if anything have been on decline.
he wants to add a extra $500 a month onto the already insane $3100 + wants $900 in compensation for the sudden spike lol.
come to think of it we did get a notice on our door prior to this about a power disconnection notice.
all utilities are included in this place but when we got that we couldn't get ahold of the new owner.
I have seen similar thinks people living in a house next to a abandoned or a house that is up for sale knowone is living and and people plugin in extension cords at night using the empty house as a crack or heron denSomething that happened in an apartment years ago. There was energized plugs for each unit outside. A couple of them were covered and homeless people were using the shelter of the building combined with electric space heaters on max to keep warm when the weather got colder. It might not be a power draw only insides but outside too.
Or they might have found a plug that is on your meter and intentionally using your power etc.
