there are 3 units 2 1 bedroom units and 1 3 bedroom unit water billed to landlord each unit pays 1/3 of total bill disputed by tenent
Tenant usually pays all utilities. Your Lease can negotiate who pay what. Everything is negotiable. But 95% of the time the tenant pays utilities. Condos usually water is included.
Ask the property manager/landord if its a gross lease or a net lease.
The tenant is responsible for utilities unless otherwise agreed in the Lease Agreement. Large Lots that may require a considerable amount of watering, or a pool home the bill will increase in the summer. Something to keep in mind.
Typically, the renter pays the utilities, but the lease can be written for either the renter or the lanhdlord to pay the utilities. Sometimes it's all bill paid, and sometimes not.
That would be the owners decision as to how they wanted to rent the house. If you have signed a lease take a look at that.
I'm living in a condo and I'm curious what the HOA fees are covering?
The rental agreement or lease between a tenant and landlord should specify who pays for each utility. Check your rental agreement, and if you have questions, you can call us directly at 951-314-5402.
what if lease states renter pays by owners management, but management is having owner pay. Basically is it legal to have owner pay water then forge a bill to renter to collect in managements pocket even tho management is telling owner he has to pay water but didn't tell owner he has renter paying it also.
I assume this question has been answered adequately by now it depends on what is spelled out in the lease agreement. Normally the property owner elects to pay the water bill because if the bill is not paid in many states a lien can be placed against the property. What does your lease say?
Typically, all utilities are the responsibility of the renter, but ultimately, it is whatever is agreed upon in the lease.
Depends on what the lease states, what does the lease state?
Water bill is usually the tenants responsibility, unless its an Apartment unit or Condo.
Water is in the landlords name, garbage and sewer can be determined between the tenant and landlord.
Usually, all utilities are the responsibility of the Tenant, unless it's a condominium
If you still have questions I would suggest you have your lease contract reviewed by an attorney.
I believe the water bill is almost always in the landlords/owners name but it is negotiable as to who is to pay for it. It should be spelled out before moving in, and should be in your lease. Also I would think it should be prorated with the landlord depending on usage and dates there...Everything is negotiable! If it's in writing it carries the most weight. Best of Luck.
why would a landlord or property manager want to have access to a tenants utility bill that's in the tenants name?
why would a landlord or property manager want to be put on a tenants utility bill when it's in the tenants name
please help.... I moved into my apartment Nov 15th. I was just given a water bill covering the period from Sept 16th through Dec 16th. The bill is in the LL's name. Why would I be responsible for the entire bill??
