We own a community in TX that has a master meter for water, gas and electric. We are in the process of getting the public city utility to service each tenant directly, it’s a leighthy and frustrating process.
Meanwhile we are disconnecting tenant’s utilities in accordance with the TX Public Utilities Commission rules and chapter 94 of property code. But the JP judge keeps granting writ of restoration for tenants that file a motion without giving any good reason.
Some attorneys are telling us to appeal and file in County Court and get a higher level judge to rule, but some other attorneys are telling us that even if the County judge rules in our favor the JP judge does not have to follow the county judges ruling.
Has anyone had t deal with this issue?
