Just want to check, I am renting a property to a person, without formal contract one la, just rent out.

The Indah Water bill, should be paid by the person who rent the house? Or by the owner?

Please share.

Thanks Amy,

Similar case to me, that property belongs to my dad, and he rented out to this person quite long time edi, at a very cheap price somemore, so i was thinking eith to nego for a rental increase or get him to pay the indah water bill.

Any other case?

IWK bill I think is quite cheap.
For my case i bought this second hand property from this vendor. When i wanted to change Indah water bills to my name i found out that he never paid his IWK bills for the last 5-6 years, with a total of >RM500. And the IWK officer told me that if I want to change name, I have to settle the bill first. No way im going to pay for that.

thought your SPA lawyer would have settled this before giving the vendor the last payment? rclxub.gif
your SPA lawyer would ask a copy of the latest water, electricity, IWK, assessment and quit rent from the vendor before releasing the final sum to them.

Depends on your negotiation before you rent to them.

1) Some owner pays the bill and charge the tenant higher.

2) Tenant pays. (The problem is that, when they decided not to rent the house, they will leave a sum of debt for you to clear. Which is very annoying and painstaking.)

Its the owner responsibility.

Tenant may pay on behalf & deduct from monthly rental.

They did, but the vendor didnt give it to them.
I thought IWK is like water and electricity bills, where you can change name easily.

same like renting the condo, maintenance fee is paid by the owner, therefore, indah water should be paid by the owner....

Safer if owner settle all the bills, especially electricity. If you search these forums, you'll see lots of cases where tenant disappeared with thousands of ringgit in utility bills not paid.

If you still want tenant to pay, make sure to check the bills regularly to make sure they are paid.

Hm.. I think it's safer if the owner go and make payment then monitor regularly.

What is the best/better way to nego for a rental increase? Can share your experience?

What I heard if you don't pay for long time they will drag you to court then confiscated your house properties for auction to settle the bills you owe and lawyer fees.

I never see they coming to do their work in my area either in day time or even midnight. When the sewage pipe get stuck we have to endure the stench for a month before they come to fix. When come to collecting money they never miss the bills for you every 6 months...sometimes like we pay for nothing...

BUMP this old thread...

How to check the INDAH WATER bill ?

I think I need him to pay.. Since indah water can be waived if the house is vacant.
