Utility Bill On Rented Property


The tenant vacated a house on the last day of September.  The utility bill that comes from the local municipality is always of the previous month. So, at the end of September, the utility bill for August came in which the tenant paid. 

The question is; what about the utility bill of September, which will only come in at the end of October?  Who has to pay for this (the September one) keeping in mind that the tenant was in fact occupying the house and used the water, electricity etc for September as well… 


So, does he have to pay it or do I pay for it?


The tenant will be held responsible for the September utility bill since he had occupied the premises during the month of September and utilised water, lights, etc.
