Utility Billing Laws and Best Practices

Wednesday, May 4, 2022
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (PDT)

Online Only

Event Details

When a utility bill combines usage from more than one dwelling unit, housing providers must come up with a fair method of passing those costs on to tenants. It may be most simple to include the costs in rent, but some tenants may use far more resources than others, and there is no incentive to conserve. Attorney Chris Benis will review laws to consider when determining utility billing policies, including special requirements in the City of Seattle. He and Property Management professional, Enrique Jevons will review and discuss common practices for utility billing solutions.
