It turns out that previous owner (in his 80’s) had signed a contract with Ontario Energy Group for an AC unit (yes OEG is under investigation for illegal business practices) and did not disclose contract (apparently he continued to pay the bill until Sep 2019).

Now I am being harassed for payment (now at ($800+) and I have confirmed that OEG placed a lien on my property in Sep 2019 (4 years after the AC unit was installed).

Is this legal? What are my rights? They want a ridiculous amount ($14K) for a 4 year old AC Unit!!!

Thanks in advance for help.

Cheers!

Bob

However, I would always recommend closed cell spray foam insulation.

Outside to remain open and unsided. Would you recommend foam, and if so, which kind. Logs are 140 year-old cedar. House is drafty. Many thanks!
