So, I moved into my current apartment on July 1st. However, my roommate and I paid for an extra 2 weeks rent in order to get the apartment, from June 15th-July 1st. Today, I got an electric bill in the mail forwarded from the property manager for $27.25 (a little less than 400 kilowatt hours), saying that since we moved in on the 15th, it was our responsibility. Given that we hadn't actually moved
here until the 15th, and 400 kilowatt hours seems a bit much for an apartment that wasn't being lived in, do we have a responsibility to pay it?
I'm guessing "yes," but it seems kinda nuts that someone used 400 kwh of our power over 15 days without our permission (most likely the property manager left something plugged in or something), and we have to pay for it.
