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.
