Home owner denying access to outdoor power plug for the block heater
I am a resident of Ontario. I have rented a house, and I pay my rent individually. My rent lease covers all utilities and parking space for one car. I am only one owning a car in the house of all. Unlike the last owner with whom I had a similar arrangement, this owner is not allowing me to use outdoor power plug for my car's block heater. I live in Northern Ontario, and my car is ancient and relies on the block hear for a smooth start in the morning. He has unpowered the plug and is asking me $50 for a month for access with reason that it was not part of the lease. Being a student and already a high rent, $50 for three months would be a hefty expense. Is it right of him to ask this money? My lease already says that hydro covered by owner and there is a facility to park one vehicle. Can he land me in trouble for using power extension from the house and not paying him extra for outdoor power plug?
