Massachusetts Legal Info
According to the Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 186 Section 22, A landlord may cause to be installed by a plumber licensed in the commonwealth, at the expense of such landlord, submetering equipment in the landlord’s building to measure the quantity of water provided for the exclusive use of each dwelling unit, provided that such equipment meets the standards of accuracy and testing of the American Water Works Association or a similar accredited association; and provided further, that a sub-meter is installed for each dwelling unit in the building and for the common areas of the building, so that all water used in a building is measured by both a primary meter and a sub-meter. The practice of utility billing for natural gas, trash and electricity is prohibited in the state of Massachusetts. The only billing practice that is allowed is billing for water using a submetering system. The property manager is not allowed to charge any fees.
