I’ve lived in Hualien for years and every other month (every 2 months) I get an individual electric bill from the power company.
Looking at apartments to live in Taipei now, I found a place in Nangang, but the landlord says he charges a flat rate of 7,000NTD for two months of electricity. He also says he can’t provide a bill or statement, just requires tenants to pay that flat fee. My spidey sense is tingling. Is this common practice in the bigger cities, or is he trying to take us for a ride? I’ve never paid 7k for an electric bill in Hualien, but I can accept that. However, no print out or bill/statement? Seems suspicious to me.
