Long-Term Renters Face Eviction Because Of Unpaid Sewer Bill
Imagine being a renter who kept meticulous records, and always paid your rent on time. Included in your rent are utilities, such as the sewer bill. You know your landlord is responsible for covering this bill, and because you’re always on time with your payments, and you’ve lived in your home for over a decade, you have no reason to suspect that there might be a problem, or that there’s an eviction looming over your head.
This is the situation the Woodhurst mobile home park residents are facing right now. They have been told that their landlords have not paid their sewer bill, and it doesn’t look as though they’re able to pay the $90,000 bill at all, according to an article on the KDSK.com website.
Without an operational sewer system, the residents of the mobile park are facing the possibility of eviction because their properties would be condemned. As it is, many of them have had no water, and have had to buy water from the store, and even melt snow to flush their toilets.
