Illinois Legal Info

The use of Ratio Utility Billing System is allowed for billing the tenants of a multifamily housing unit in Illinois. The landlord is required to provide the tenants with a copy of the formula that is used to calculate the allocated utility payments between the residents of the community. This information shall be provided to the tenants before demanding payments for the utilities. The main emphasis is on disclosure of the information. The owners are not allowed to charge more than the total amount they are being charged by the public utilities. The tenants could request a copy of the public utility bill from the landlord for their records.

This requirement applies to several different areas of the USA. The license has to remain current and valid while doing business in these regions.

Illinois Submetering

At Multifamily Utility we work closely with local, state and national regulatory agencies to ensure every meter we recommend is code compliant. In some cases your state may require all submetering products be sent to a government office for inspection and testing. If that is the case we will do that on your behalf. Once everything has been approved we will move forward with the project. Before installation starts we will send out notices to all residents letting them know of the new submetering systems that are going to be installed. The goal is to make the transition for all involved as quick and easy as possible. Some of the benefits associated with installing a submetering system include conservation, better detection of leaks, less administrative work, reduced operating costs, improved property value and stabilized rents just to name a few. Besides submetering we also offer a host of other services designed to help you meet all of your property needs. Some of those services include Ratio Utility Billing Systems, Billing & Collections, Utility Expense Management, and Meter Compliance & Maintenance. When it comes to resident and owner customer support Multifamily Utility is setting the standard. We also have bilingual agents available to assist those whose native language isn’t English. Our friendly customer service team will handle every service request and question in a routine and detailed manner. Every issue is tracked, responded to and resolved as quickly and professionally as possible. By offering a wide range of products and services in utility submetering, utility management and utility conservation, we are able to provide all of our clients with results that endure.
