My renter who is a very young graduate student told me in August that he wanted to stay in the cottage for two years. I told him we would have a trial period from Aug-Dec. then decide what to do about renewal. He told me Dec 1 that he would be moving out this month, and today he told me to buy back the propane in the tank that he didn't use. And if I didn't, he would call the propane company and they would come and get it (and buy it back). The account is in my name, and I haven't had a chance to talk to the propane company, but am I beholding to him? There is no clause in the rent that says Landlord will purchase unused propane. It was filled in early November and I had not a clue that he would be leaving. If I had not had the tank filled, he would be pretty cold by now. And also, can the propane company come and get gas that is in my name? What typically happens in this case? If I do buy it back, how is it pro-rated? I think I would feel better about it if he hadn't been so assertive in his demand. Would appreciate opinions as there are many on this forum!
