Electricity Bill Payment Terms
  • Tenants need to track and clear payable bills on a timely basis to avoid disconnection of services. Incase of disconnection of electricity bill or removal of electricity meter, Tenant will visit the local electricity board office and bear all charges to activate the connection.
  • Electricity bills are generated by the Electricity board and that Home Owner or GetSetHome is nowhere responsible for unit consumption or calculation of bill amount generated.
  • Electric fuse out at the property is due to either high consumption of electricity or due to use of faulty appliances / adapter / chargers. Incase if electric fuse out, tenants are expected to arrange for local electricians and fix the issue at their own cost.
  • Incase tenants are expected to travel out of town for a period of time, tenants should empty the refrigerator and switch off the main power supply to ensure no consumption of electricity. There may be basis charges added by the electricity department even if the main switch is kept off.
  • In case of any concerns related to the electricity bill amount, tenants will have to directly raise complaints with the Electricity Board.

  • We will further reach out to the owner and society office for respective permission. Please note that we are not obliged to offer permission for this requirement. Only if homeowner and society office allows permission will we honor the request.
  • If we have received the necessary approvals for the installation of a new power connection for EV charging, the tenant owing EV will have to pay one month\'s rent equivalent as an additional security deposit over and above the 2 months\' rent as a deposit paid.
  • On receipt of the additional deposit, the tenant owing the vehicle will incur the entire cost involved for installation for PowerPoint and society charges if applicable.
  • Due to the fact that the electricity bill is divided equally amongst the tenants residing for the respective time periods, to make it fair for non-EV vehicle users and EV vehicle users, we will consider an average of electricity bills for the last 6 months and from the month EV charging is being used. The differential amount exceeding the average of 6 months will be added completely on to the tenant owning the EV. For clarity: If the average bill amount of the last 6 months for a property was Rs.3000 split between 6 tenants i.e. Rs.500 per head and post additional EV charging the monthly bill is Rs.4000, the differential amount of Rs. 1000 will be added along with average split to EV owner and total bill payment will be Rs.1500.
