If you’re a rental property owner, should you include the electric, water, and cable bill in your rent? Here are my thoughts.
One of the common things we discuss with our owners is whether or not they should include electric, water, and cable in their rental.
Now, there are some instances where you can’t avoid it. If you’re in an HOA, townhome, or planned unit community and all of that is wrapped up in your maintenance fees, you can’t help that. It’s almost impossible to do this with a shared unit.
“We have a lot of experience helping owners work through this problem.”
However, for single-family homeowners who rent out their units separately, you have a decision. You can always separate parking and mailboxes. Electric and water will be difficult, though.
We have a lot of experience with this kind of thing and know the kinds of solutions needed to work around it. If you have any questions for me about this topic or anything else related to your rental property, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
