I know this topic has been covered in various posts but I'm not 100% clear on what this does.
I have read that a lot of landlords wont sign the form and if they don't I would have to pay the previous tenants water and electric bill.
I don't want to get stung with a bill that isn't mine.
When would you ask the landlord to sign the form?
What if the landlord refuses? Would it be worth just looking at a different apartment?
If we do get hit with a big bill that we shouldn't be paying for electricity or water, can you appeal it?
