When it comes to utility and services charges, there are varying rules
around this across the country so it’s important to check your relevant state
speaking, however, during a tenancy, tenants are responsible for the following
utility charges if the property has a separate meter (one which the supply to
one property only):
- All charges for the supply or use of electricity, gas or oil
(including supply charges and reconnection fees).
- All charges based on the amount of water consumed (but not service
charges or reconnection fees).
- All sewerage disposal charges.
- All charges for the use of bottled gas (but not for the supply or
hire of gas bottles).
- On the other hand, if a property is not metered separately,
landlords are responsible for:
- Initial connection fees
- Usage charges for the utilities.
