Covering Utilities in a Real Estate Lease

Generally, landlords decide whether or not to cover the cost of utilities or to allow the tenant to assume responsibility for his or her own utilities. In many cases, a landlord will cover the cost of water and garbage pick-up, while a tenant will cover other utilities such as electricity, gas, cable TV or internet service.
