My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Missouri
Under our old lease, it stated that the tenant has 2 days to get the utlities put into their names, and we did. However, when our old lease expired and we renewed it, our landlord increased the rent but did not provide us with a renewed lease copy. Our landlord is trying to evict us for not paying a water bill that is not in our name. We tried on several occasions to pay the bill but the water company would not give us any information about the bill, because it was not in our name. Are we responsible for the bill, if we dont have a lease copy?
