Gas and Electric utilities are almost always the responsibility of the Resident. For those who are looking for a single family home, you would also be required to pay for the water/sewer utility and sometimes trash utility, as well.
Keep in mind that we also have many apartments that are all-electric for those who are trying to avoid having to pay a gas bill.
We often get questions about the estimated amount of the utilities of a home or apartment, and many times we can only offer a best guess. Fortunately, the utility companies will give you what an “average usage” amount would be based on the previous occupant. Keep in mind that their living situation and usage may be very different from what yours will be, but it is a good place to start.
We have included a list of utility companies below for your convenience.
