You can send your form to the city by fax or mail: information for owners and tenants regarding billing and payment of water water. The City offers two options for landlords who wish to make their tenants responsible for water and wastewater costs: the water is turned back on when payment of arrears is received. If full payment cannot be made, a formal declaration of commitment for payment agreements for the balance must be completed and respected, or if the landlord (or delegate) provides the city with information about a new tenant. The city needs at least 48 hours in advance to turn the water back on. The mailing design app is available on the City of Toronto website. If there is an agreement on the designated electricity bill, it is the designated (not the owner) who will pay, if any, the additional bill fees. You must fill out a form for each site, as the city must ensure that you will be informed of the upcoming closure if the tenant contacts you directly. This law stipulates that if the provision of a vital service (water, fuel, gas) is interrupted because the tenant has not paid his own electricity bill, the tenant cannot claim that the lessor has retained a vital service. The water supply contract exists between the tenant and the city, it is the city that decides when the water is cut off for non-payment of the water bill.

When the owner receives a copy of the notice of formal notice, he has the opportunity to send a request to take into account the water stop to the City; The application will be reviewed and determine if it is eligible to stop the water supply to the premises for the late tenant. Until the arrears are paid in full, water remains free on the land unless the owner (or designate) authorizes the City to create a new account for a new tenant in the property, or the owner (or designated) has informed the City that both parties have reconciled the arrears. The city helps landlords collect tenants` outstanding water bills and offers landlords the opportunity to reduce the potential for unpaid water bills that will be transferred to their property tax bill. Upon request, the City may cut off the water supply of a property occupied by a tenant whose water count is overdue. According to the owner/tenant agreement, if the tenant`s account is late, the landlord receives copies of the formal notice, which is also sent to the tenant. Note: An applicant may request at any time to remove them from the account, with or without a final reading. To delete the applicant without closing the account, the application must be sent by fax or mail. The application must clearly indicate that they do not want the account to be closed, or that a final reading be made and that the related fees apply to the account. The water will be turned back on once the City has received the new Property Contract Form – Landlord (or Applicant) Tenant Occupancy Form.

The arrears of the former tenant are transferred to the property tax roll. . . .
