Question by sara r: Can Reliant energy sell your house if you owe a light bill?
I have a neighbor who says that a man came upnto her door and he said that he just had bought her house, to harris county because she owed $ 10,000dl to Reliant Energy.
Answer by Bill
No they can not get ownership of her house but they can place a lien against the property and would be in line to paid first if she sold the property. I doubt that Reliant would keep her electricity on long enough for her to run up a $ 10K bill. The utility companies usually shut off service when you are 60-90 days behind in making payments.
