Landlord Options to Limit Liability

Water and sewer services, under City's code, are incident to and deemed to run with the land, and the Landowner (who benefits from the existence of the utility service by being able to rent/use the property) is liable for unpaid accounts. As the landowner, you may be able to limit your liability for utility accounts by doing one or more of the following:

  • Call a Customer Service Representative at 970-244-1579 to ask about the status of your renter's account
  • Choose to keep account(s) under your name
  • Contractually protect your interests via lease terms
  • Control and monitor the situation by receiving duplicate bills on the property - you must specifically request to receive duplicate billing on each property and duplicate billing(s) must be requested whenever there are tenant/account changes
