What is my landlord's utility responsibility?
According to state and local law, a landowner is responsible for any sewer charges left unpaid by a tenant. When a tenant leaves an unpaid account, the Utility Office attempts to locate an owner for the property and notify the owner of the unpaid charges. If the charges are still unpaid, a lien is then placed on the property.

In order to help protect the landlord, the property owner can complete a Notification Form for each of the properties, so that we can send a letter to the property owner whenever the tenant has a two month bill. According to City Ordinance landlords are responsible for stormwater charges for each property, unless it is specifically stated in the lease that the tenant is to assume the charges.
