bge Is forcing me to pay someone else's bill baltimore Maryland
There has got to be something to be done about the way bge is causing homeowners to loose their homes in the state of maryland because of other peoples bad habits. I own a home in Baltimore city which at one point my x-husband an i lived in together until 2007. At which time i moved out and he refused to leave, he did not pay my mortgage on time which i had to keep getting out of foreclosure and he did not pay the water bill on time, i called the company and asked them to shut off the water so i would not continue to incur bills because the bill was in my name, they said i had to fax over a letter stating that which i did and the water was never turned off, now i have a huge water bill to pay and i wasnt even living there. He also ran up the bge and at one point he started to connect it himself, once i found out about this i called bge repeatedly and no one would come out, i also called the police and they said bge would have to take care of it, the bill was in his name so i didnt care at that point, i just wanted it off so my house would not burn down.
No one would listen to me, i finally went to court because he started to threaten me and threaten to destroy my house, i had him put out of the house by court orders, i contacted my mortgage company to get my payments back on track and now i am trying to find a renter that can come in so i will have help paying my mortgage. I contacted bge to come out and connect power, they stated they couldnt do that because of a pass due bill of 10,000.00. I explained to them that the bill belong to my x husband and he was no longer in the property, they said i had to do a house inspection and the house had to bcompletly empty, i did that. then they stated i needed to replace the service entry cable because he had damaged it, i did that (which cost me $1000), once they came out to inspect it they said i had to have hard wired smoke detectors installed in the house (which were already there), they came out and passed the inspection. they said that was all i needed to do to move someone in. Once my tenant called to have his service transferred, they stated they were not gonna approve anyone to have power at my residence because of the past due balance, even after i have done everything they asked me to do.
I then called them myself and tried to explain my situation yet again, they said they needed to send another investigator out to do another home inspection to an empty house, i agreed to that, the inspector never showed up. I called back everyday every hour on the hour and still no one would speak to me about my case, they would only tell me i needed to talk to this one supervisor that was never available. At that point i felt i had exhausted every effort inside of bge, so now i have filed a complaint with the PSC, I hope i am able to get some resolution to my situation because i feel no one is listening to my story, I know there are some awful people out there because my x husband is one of them, he would give anything to see me loose my house, in fact he told me he is waiting for me to loose my house so he can move into his. And it seems like bge is giving him just what he wants. I have worked very hard to save my house from numerous foreclosures caused by him and i would hate to loose my house because of the things he has done.
Im gonna have faith that someone will see what im going through and do whats right, i feel bad he owes bge that amount of money but he is putting me in all types of debt because of this. If anyone knows what i can do please reach out to me because i dont know what else to do. I really need help here!! I would love for myself and others that are going through this with bge to get together and bring about a huge law suit because this cannot be legal to hold someone and their property accountable for someone else's bad decisions.
