Sure it is. The LL can charge whatever rent he wants to any tenant who will pay it unless it falls under rent control laws. Unless you had a continuing lease from one year to the next, rents can increase. When you left and terminated your lease, the new lease can be written under new terms. And no law says that all tenants must pay the same rent, unless your rent was increased for discriminatory reasons. Neighboring tenants in 2 identical units can be charged two different rents. Just as 2 buyers can pay 2 different prices for identical cars, it is whatever price he can get for it.

I can only guess the landlord is charging me for electricty I'm not using is that legal?
A LL's can charge you whatever they want, as long as you agree to pay it. If the LL want to charge $5,000.00 per month they can, but you must want to pay. If you are in a lease, complete the contract and give thirty days notice to move (or what your contract says) It is a good idea to give notice to move out when you pay rent on the 1st of the month. If allowed give notice to move the last month of the contract. Also, all LL's are required to give you at least 30 days notice if the rent in going up. If you do move, before you sign up, check out the new property. Talk to the residents, drive the property at night about 11:00pm and see whats going on (drinking, parties, etc.) and look at the grounds and other aspects of the new place, Is there trash, grounds clean, dead cars?? Good Luck.

No law says tenants of identical units (or lots) have to pay the same rate. The one on the left can pay $300, the one on the right can pay $600 of the LL can get someone to pay that rate. The laws of supply and demand rule renting. The LL can charge whatever price he can get a tenant to pay, providing they have no lease guaranteeing them a set rate.

Hello,

Can a Texas RV park charge a tenant an electric rate higher than they are charged from the electic utility? Thank you for your reply.

Are the tenant and resident laws the same regarding RVs if you have lived in one for more than 6 months at a specific address? I would think it would be the same as being locked out of an apartment. This is my residence, and I would hope there is something I can do to keep him from just up and pulling it away.

If anyone has any specific information about this, could you please let me know? Tomorrow is when he is planning this. My neighbor said to call the police when he tried, but I'd like to know my rights before I make a huge scene for nothing.
who ever pays the rent can do what they like. The owner of the rv park can unplug you if the rent is not paid on time. If the rent is not paid and you move it a lean can be put on the rv.

Yes they can, most rv parks charge to the round number. Most bill come after you have paid your bill to the rv park and the fsc can make the price change.
