Who Pays the Electric Bill?

Paragraph 11 in the Residential Lease (TAR 2001) covers the landlord’s and tenant’s obligations regarding a property’s utilities. It stipulates that the tenant will pay all connection, service, and usage fees associated with a property’s utilities. If there are exceptions to the tenant’s responsibilities—for example, the landlord will pay for internet service—those exceptions can be noted in the blanks of Section A.
