Asked by Kirk Doyle, 21236 • Tue Feb 3, 2009
I recently purchased a home in a rural area of Cecil County MD where most of the houses have septic and propane. The original owners had a contract with a propane company in which the gas company owned 500 gallon underground propane tank and the property owners could only use that gas companyâ€™s services for filling the tank (common practice). I contacted the Gas Company to try and buy-out the propane tank. They stated that they do not sell the tank and that my options (more or less) were to take the contract or they would remove the tank. When I asked which party would be responsible for the removal, they stated that the previous owners would pay for the removal.
This seems to be heading in the direction of needing legal assistance. 1) They charge $0.65 more than some other Gas Co. 2) The previous owners should not have to pay for my request 3) I don't want them to rip up yard just to reinstall the same tank.
Has anyone else ran into this same issue? What are my options?
