Apparently he just texted my daughter while she is at work that we suddenly need to pay the gas & electric immediately or he will shut it off....
as per California Tenant Law (and other sites I have read) http://www.caltenantlaw.com/Eviction.htm if he does that he owes me money.
THANKS Shadeshaman for the links
He has my daughter in a panic - I am sooo done with this jack ass. Our dogs are going away tomorrow, we have boxes stacked over our heads. Little Boy is going away Monday, not to return till we are moved in to new place. Daughter & I do have places to stay if we wanted to be gone and not here -- that isn't the fucking point.
"E & K you need to pay the SDGE bill of $159.38 or it will be turned off. We do not have any deposit & you have not repaired plumbing problems send check to PO BOX immediately to avoid turn off."
