Tenant Agreement To Pay Directly For Electricity Costs

By Zach Arnold | April 12, 2021

There are popular landlords because they make sure that no debt is accumulated and left by the tenants. The prepaid meter works with cards or keys in which credit is added in advance. They work just like prepaid mobile cards. You pay – you use. As a general rule, this type of arrangement is often available to HMO tenants. HMO tenants rent their own rooms, which they have exclusive access to. However, they also share common facilities with other tenants, such as kitchen, living room, bathroom, garden, etc. Separate service charges must be accounted for at point 13 of the lease. Tenants usually pay for services such as electricity, gas, telephone and Internet.

They can also be charged for water (conditions of application). Ideally, your landlord should have given you information about the people who supply your gas and electricity. You are responsible for walking through all the metres of the house and showing you where the central switches are in case of an emergency. As a general rule, homeowners pay water prices and tenants pay for their consumption of these services. The owner/manager of the property is not entitled to make a profit when providing services to tenants or to charge tenants for the cost of supplying or maintaining equipment or time and work in the reading counters. A second option is to have one or all of your bills included as part of the rent. This is very useful for tenants because they pay an amount of money from the static apartment to one person each month. It`s easy to predict a single edition as a bunch of them go to a bunch of different directions. In 2014, the average annual double bill (gas and electricity) reached $1.344 (information provided by OVO Energy).

That`s a month`s rent for a two-bedroom apartment in London. The administrator/owner may decide to pass on the service charge to the tenant. How the amount is calculated and paid must be agreed in advance and included in the lease. If the tenant receives his electricity bill from you, that is, not directly from the electricity supplier, you cannot charge the tenant an amount other than the consumption costs. You should pay the supply fee yourself. This is why HMO real estate often shares energy bills among all tenants, one acting as responsible for measuring and collecting payments from others. If this is the case, make sure that each tenant`s name is registered with the energy supplier. In this way, if the worst happens and the debts are accumulated, all tenants will be held responsible for the bill. If you are a tenant and you are responsible for paying for electricity or natural gas, it is important to know what is written in the contract with your energy supplier.

The contract defines the terms of the supply service. For example, its cancellation terms, expiry date, fees and all automatic renewal clauses. You should know what happens to the contract when you move. Be sure to read and understand the contract before you sign it. A calculation for electricity can be (total bill/ total number of rooms in the apartment block) x Number of rooms in rooms for rent in the rental agreement.
