Texas Legal InfoTexas has one of the most detailed sets of rules and regulations concerning tenant billing services by the owners. The owners of residential dwellings may use metering or ratio utility systems (RUBS) for tenant billing. Additional charges and fees are not allowed under this system except for a limited amount for late fee and reconnect fee. The maximum fee amounts have a cap. The rental contract must clearly outline the charges and methods used for calculating utility bills. It is the responsibility of the management team to maintain records of the master utility bills. These records have to be available for inspection by tenants upon request.
DisclaimerBilling Service Providers are required to apply and be approved for licenses from a regulatory agency prior to starting the servicing of the client’s billing accounts. This requirement applies to several different areas of the USA. The license has to remain current and valid while doing business in these regions. The information on this page is deemed to be accurate but updates may occur at any time. Please Contact Multifamily Utility Company with your specific questions about your area of service.
Texas SubmeteringThe Texas Water Code requires each unit in a building with five or more residential units built after Jan. 1, 2003 to have either an individual water utility meter or sub-meter. If feasible, it requires water companies to install individual meters in such buildings at the building owner’s request. The water company can charge reasonable costs for installing the meters. If the water company determines that installing these meters is not feasible, the law requires the property owner to install a plumbing system compatible with sub-meters. The code also requires the property owners to maintain adequate records and make them available to tenants and sub-meters to meet certain standards for accuracy, testing, and record keeping.
