Utility Billings for Rental Properties (Water, Sewer, Garbage, Recycling)

Utility billing must remain in the name of the property owner. Bills may no longer be sent directly to the tenant.

Unpaid utility bills are transferred to the property tax roll, therefore non-payment by a tenant will impact the owner’s taxes. While it is convenient for owners to have a tenant billed directly, it can create a serious problem when tenants are delinquent in paying these bills, which are then transferred to the owner’s tax roll. The owner remains responsible for these payments, even if the property is rented.

If you currently own a rental property with direct tenant billing in place, we will continue that arrangement until such time as the property becomes vacant. Once the property is vacated by the current tenant, the option of direct tenant billing will no longer be offered.

For information on additional utilities not managed by the Town of Turner Valley, including gas, electricity, phone and internet please see the Privately Managed Utilities page.
