Have you heard?  New Virginia  Law, Tenants and
Water Accounts.  Your a landlord and the tenant decides to skip out on paying the final water bill.  If that happens a lien can end up on the landlord’s home.
Effective July 1, 2012,  
A new Virginia Law, will require tenants to pay a $250 deposit when setting up a new water service account.  This deposit will be applied to the final bill, to reduce unpaid final bills and to reduce the number of liens on properties.

As this is great news for a landlord, however, you can guess tenants will be expressing their concerns for having to pay a $250 deposit to set up a new water account in addition to all the other costs of moving into a home you are renting.

On single-family rentals in our area, landlord generally pays the water, included in the rent. Apartments, too.

Hi Anna. The bills should follow tenants where ever they go...they created the bill they should pay it.
