Antonio has a second home he hardly uses, so he decided to rent it out to earn a little extra money.
After a certain period, the tenants left. They left the apartment in perfect condition and the rental contract was terminated without any problem.
The surprise came when the power company contacted Antonio to inform him that his tenants had not paid the last bills. What happens now? Who is responsible for this debt?
Who is the title holder of the electricity contract?
It is advisable for the person enjoying the service to be the title holder of the contract. In other words: if things were done correctly, the electricity contract would not be in Antonio’s name, but in his tenant’s name.
Remember, electricity, water, gas or telephone contracts do not apply to the property but to the person whose name is on the contract. This is the correct way to do things to avoid problems.
