Oh my goodness Im so upset. This is totally off topic but I just need to vent and ask for knowledge or advice. We are closing on our new house on Friday (yayyy ) and we will be moving in this weekend. We are currently renting. When we moved into this place a few years ago, we were required to pay for the 1/4 tank of oil that was left in the tank. Now, we're moving out, and I just filled the tank not too long ago. There is 3/4 of a tank left, which is about $750 worth of oil. My landlord is REFUSING to reimburse us for the oil. He flat out said no way, because upon talking to the soon-to-be tenants that are moving in here, he learned they are unable to pay for it either. What do I do?! He expects me to just leave $750 sitting in a tank in the basement?? The new house we are moving into has a full tank (which i have to pay $1050 for at closing Friday!) otherwise I'd pump the oil and bring it with me! Is this the landlords responsibility to reimburse us for this oil?! I hate to say it since I know the people who are moving into this place next, but if they cannot afford to pay all of the necessary costs of moving in, then wouldn't that be a deal breaker? Ugh, im SO stressed. With closing costs and everything else due Friday, that $750 is like GOLD right now.

Is there anyway you could pump it and store it? It is rightfully yours.

I agree. I would look into pumping it and taking it with you for sure! There must be a way!

He has to reimburse you it, you are suppose to leave the tank the way you found, either full, empty 1/2 tank etc. That is 750!! NOOOO way I would let that man keep that much money! If those new people moving cant pay for it, then the landlord has to give you your money back. Look up, online, legal tenants rights in your area, they offer lots of advice and will help you learn your rights.

is it in a contract you were required to pay 1/4 of the oil?

If your landlord absolutely refuses to pay for it, then pump it and store it. I think he should be required to reimburse you, and the fact that the new tenants can't pay it is NOT your problem, it's his! If he wants you to leave the oil, then he needs to reimburse you and then work out a payment plan with the new tenants. Was there anything written in your lease regarding the oil?

Hope there is a way to pump it out and store. I know the money would come in handy right now. But the only other alternative if he is refusing to pay is for you to get the oil out somehow and leave the tank empty. Sorry you are having to deal with this with all you have going.

I'd pump it and take it with you. I'm sure there is some way you could store it and it would serve the landlord right!

I agree with the other ladies, either that or see if the new people can make payments.

What you should do is look up online the tank you have and then search how to pump oil out of it. OR Call the company and ask how to pump oil out of your tank, like,LIE of course, you are thinking of putting a tank on your property you just got but would leave to leave the oil in this one how could i pump it out and store it, but that might throw up red flags. Stick with finding your tank online and searching for pumping out oil.
