Delivery Charge/Sec Dep (by mapleaf18 [NY]) Posted on: Oct 4, 2022 9:51 AM

As you may know, my young couple broke the lease three months into the bargain. The young man, instead of calling and asking questions about the procedure (and I gave it to him in writing) went ahead and TURNED OFF the utilities to the unit (which is a NO NO especially heading into fall//winter in these parts) Because he did a cut off instead of having me to do the transfer at the exit inspection, which was 9/30, (he is not allowed to do the exit transfer according to the utility company) there is now a delivery charge involved.

It also makes it difficult to show the unit going forward.

Here in NYS we have 14 days to send explanation of sec dep/ etc after move out. I won't know what the delivery charges will be from the utility company are until another two weeks from now putting it past the time for the letter of explanation to go out.

Any advice?

I would just call the utility & get their estimated extra costs to have the service restored. Then just show that as an estimated costs on the settlement sheet. --71.184.xxx.xxx

Wow, only 14 days? I think Id try to estimate as much as you canand/or if there is a range then go with the highest number and state in your letter to tenant that this is based off an estimate and may need to be adjusted once final numbers are known. Then, if its less, send them another check later. --99.92.xxx.xxx

Is there any way you can plead for a deferment on that portion of the accounting statement? Start with the estimate as the others above me have shown. --76.190.xxx.xxx

Steve, was on the phone for over an hour with the utility at various depts and they would NOT give me an estimate. told me to wait until the bill came out. They were not concerned about the 14 day threshold. --174.208.xx.xx

Thanks to everyone for the info. I have decided to withhold a certain amount and will adjust upon getting the actual amount. I have his forwarding address, of course, so there's that. --174.208.xx.xx
