Tenant Billing Agreements

A Tenant Billing Agreement  signed by the tenant (or land-contract purchaser) and property owner provides a convenient way for tenants to pay the water/sewer bill. The owner will receive a copy of all bills. 
  • Can a water/sewer bill for a rental property be put into a tenant's name?
  • If the bill is not paid, who is ultimately responsible for the unpaid charges? 
  • What are the reasons for this arrangement?
  • Are any improvements or changes on the horizon that landlords should be aware of? 
  • Are there things a tenant or landlord can do to control water/sewer bills?
