Three important things to do
if you change your residence
In the past six or seven months a number of owners of rented
dwellings have attempted to force tenants either to buy the properties
in which they lived, or pay exorbitant rentals, or move. The Fuel Admin-
istration, to protect the public against such profiteering and malpractice,
issued a ruling that where any landlord -actually ejected a family' from
its home under 'such threats, no coal could be delivered to this
property during the coming winter, thereby putting a ban upon the
house which would make its occupancy impossible, and leaving the
property a burden on the landlord's hands. Before buying or renting a
house, consumers are advised, therefore, to ascertain from the Bureau
of Distribution of the Fuel Administration, whether the property in
view will be permitted to receive coal.
It is important that consumers notify their dealers promptly when
moving, from a house for which they have ordered coal. In such cases
it is necessary to cancel the order for the old house and place a new
order for the new house, as dealers cannot deliver to one address on
an order for another address.
In the ca- of coal already on hand in the consumer's cellar, a
permit to tranffr it m'tt be scourd from th- R'treau of Distribution,
1518 Walnut Street, before the coal can be removed. -
