Re: Lease ending, utilites transfer procedure? by OK-LL on March 24, 2014 @14:12

Check with your utility provider. In my state, the utilities which are in tenant's name do not get charged to LL if/when unpaid. They haunt the tenant for eternity or until tenant pays; tenant will not be allowed to open a new account at another address until the delinquent account is paid. If, in fact, you have a utility who says the bill follows the property (usually city water service) then yes, you can pay it and deduct it from the tenant's SD.

You would put in your service request before the final date of tenant's occupancy, with service to start in your name the day after the tenant's final day. Tenant is responsible for utilities through their final day.
