non Payment of electricity bill by tenant how to recover
My tenant recently vacated the premises on 18th july 15 appx 11.00 p.m. He got electricity bill till 16th july 15 i.e. 28 days which he has paid. But problem is that, he is denying to pay for extra 2 days (on average basis). Is he right legally ? please help. thanks
you file a recovery suit on the basis of pending bill by showing his tenancy. please see that you have a clause for electricity in the agreement with the tenant. if it is written in the agreement that tenant has to pay the bill then you can recover from him.

Two days is acutally a meagre period, however you can write to him personally asking him to pay for certain units consumed within those two days by him. you do not have any such remedy legally since the time period is too short.
