  1. Mr. Urie, I have been reading about the owner of a home that is rented and has to pay the utilities. I have a home in Buckeye, Sundance and in the situation that they will not put the water and sewer in the name of the tenant, only the owner, if the tenant does not pay in order for the owner to re-rent, He must A; pay all back bills, in my case it was over $300.00. plus a deposit. If tenant does not pay in any given month, they do not take action…three times the tenant did not pay a penny on there bill…they still recieved service..why not they will get it from the owner. I can fax you the letter I mailed to Buckeye. O.K. Ralph Julianelle
