Does the renter or owner pay property taxes?

Your listings have a monthly rental amount but also list a separate tax amount.

Hi, it just depends on what type of lease you have. If you have a residential lease, the tenant usually pays a fixed rental amount, and the landlord pays all expenses of the property such as real estate taxes, insurance and maintenance cost, this is call a "Gross lease". But if you have a Commercial lease or "Net lease" usually the tenant is who pays rent plus operating cost such as real estate taxes,insurance and maintenance.

The renter doesn't pay property taxes. Unlike utilities which can be transferred from person to person, property taxes are assigned to the individual or company which purchased the property and are solely their responsibility. Also, it would be irresponsible to trust a rentor to pay real estate taxes for the owner due to the risk of non payment and liens put against the property. Moreover, the owner needs those tax write offs!

Larry, most of the time the owner's pay property taxes and you just pay monthly gross rental amount. When they factor in the amount that you pay monthly for rent, the owner's most likely will calculate property taxes and use it for knowing their cap rate, but won't charge you property taxes at the time of renting you their home.

The Property owner is the one responsible for paying property taxes. Normally the landowner figures that cost in when posting the rental fee for the lease to a tenant.

Property taxes are the obligation of the landlord in the case of a residential property. In other rentals such as retails, shopping centers, etc there are different agreement between landlord and renter. Always read the lease and don't be afraid to consult your Realtor. check my website for more details Good luck!

Typically the owner pays the taxes on a residential rental. Commercial rentals it is common for the taxes to be included in the lease. Of course each lease is different so check the rental agreement for clarity.

That is an agreement made between owner and renter. The owner is ultimately responsible for the paid taxes, but he may have an agreement with the renter that the takes be included in their rent.

answer by Mary Hafner   
In my case the property tax paid to the county in which I reside is listed separately on my rent bill. For example, my rent is $870 but property tax is $20.03 added to the base rent plus water, sewer and trash is listed separately and individually bringing my rent to $928 + or minus to as high as $939. etc. Could be higher.
