I live in a one-bedroom apartment with four other apartment units in the same building. Water is supposed to be included in the rent because all units are sharing one meter, but recently the landlord noticed a 50 % increase in the water bill. So he decided to ask everyone in the building (around 15 ppl total) to pay extra $ for the water saying someone is using too much water. I just thought that was impossible for someone using THAT much water that there had to be a leak somewhere or an explainable reason for it. I refused to pay the extra because I know I didn't have anything to do with it. Moreover, if the "actual" problem" wasn't fixed, I couldn't imagine how many times all the tenant here had to pay extra. At the end my landlord threatened to evict with a 30 day notice because I refused to pay. Is it legal?
