Yes. Rent is paid the property taxes of the owners landlords that they rent from. Every land owner pays taxes and insurance. If you're leasing property from them 10 times The amount of rent you're paying at least covers that.

Hello and thank you for your question. It is still the responsibility of the property owner to pay taxes on their property.

In a residential lease no, the typical lease will have the landlord being responsible for Property taxes and any HOA due's. Mary Hafner, "water charge, sewer charge, trash charge, service fee, utility tax" would all be considered utilities and would be a tenants responsibility. The pest control fee would be an additional requirement specifically stated in your lease agreement, much like renters insurance which is not a standard requirement for a lease but can be required in the lease contract. In a commercial lease it can be very common for the tenant to pay for repairs as well as all or part of annual property taxes. It would be wise to review your lease if you think there may be any question as to what your responsibilities are. Your realtor, if you used one, should have gone over any, "out of the norm" obligations.

Nope! When you rent an apartment, you're going to pay for rent and utilities.The owner of the apartment is responsible for any other expenses, like property tax or insurance.

No Renters do not pay property tax. Property tax is paid by the owners or Landlords and may already be included in the rent you pay.
