The agent wrapped everything up, took some damage out of the bond, all done. Trouble is the final electricity bill wasn't paid for and didn't arrive until weeks after they released the bond. Now here's the problem, I had no idea about this, so I called the electricity company and asked for the house's account to be set to my name because I had to go in for a week to do some renovations. I should have asked if there were outstanding amounts first but I didn't. Anyway the damn bill is in my name now and the previous tenant is AWOL. Will I be liable for this? The tenancy agreement definitely covers the billing period.
