I just moved into a new place, and the phone jack in the bedroom didn’t work. The phone company said it wasn’t covered under the service plan ( someone had cut the line outside ) and I had to pay $90 for the guy to come out and run a new line from the box to the bedroom. The question is this: Who shold pay that, me or my landlord?
If it was an apatment complex or something, I would make them pay, no question. I am renting a house from people who are friends, however, and don’t really want to raise a fuss. What would your advice be? Pay? Ask them to pay? Maybe split the bill? It’s not worth creating an adversarial tennent/landlord relationship, but it really should be their responsibility to have everything working, shouldn’t it?
