Re: Downside to renting an old house with oil heat? Possible to check cost with Gemei

Secondly I'm wondering, is it normally possible to check with the Gemeinde what past costs have been (say, altogether for all services)?
Unless the Gemeinde is the landlord, I wouldn't think they have any idea what the heating costs have been. How and why would they? This is something that you need to find out from the landlord, although generally, in houses, the costs for oil would be paid directly by the tenant, unless something else was agreed.
Service on the heating system may have to be paid by the tenant, but that is something that should be agreed in the rental contract. Maybe there is a Service contract already in place, in which case the costs (for service at least) should be quite transparent.
