i live in a home which i rent as well with 5 other tenants, we all share the same water meter and sewer meter, our landlord has us paying for both, but what bothers me is that becasue i have the 3 bedroom apartment and the other apartmets are either 1-2 bedrooms i get stuck with the larger portion of the bills. Is that legal even though i have only 2 of us residing in the home and we all have 1 bathroom in our apartment.

When people know bill is being paid from someone else, they abuse the fact. Don't do it.

Most of the time it is the Renter who pays for the water bill on a Single Family Residence property. However, if you are renting a condominium, then the water is usually included with the HOA, and the HOA is usually paid by the Landlord or Owner.

Usually the renters pay for water bill on a rented home. It all depends on if it is a single family home or an apartment complex. Usually on a single family home the renters will pay for the water bill.

It all depends on the lease or rental agreement between you and the landlord. Usually the city bills the owner of the property. Therefore the landlord pays.

It all depends on the lease or rent agreement between you and the landlord when you are renting a house or townhome. But usually the landlord pay the water most of the time.

if you are not sure, you need to check your lease and read it through...I would think most tenants pay water bill, unless you are in a multi unit building where it might be a covered expense

Landlord pays for the water; due to utility bill. The city has to bill the owner for water.

Usually the renter pays the water bill, but on occasion the landlord will pay, particularly if they want the landscape to be watered regularly.

Usually the renter, but in some cases the landlord will include the water in the rent, particularly if they want the lawn watered on a regular basis.

This is a good question! Some do and some don't, just depending on the location! I have seen some even split the bill just to help renters stay.....

I always suggest to the landlord to pay the water bill. This ensures that the landscape will get watered. If your landlord is not paying the water bill, you can always ask them, everything is negotiable.
