I am looking at a couple of parks in Texas where there are in-line meters but the owners are not charging for water. A master meter (city water) is attached to the service entry and a bill goes to the current owner each month. The broker tells me it is illegal to bill the water/sewer back to the residents!!! Is this true? If I buy the place, I plan to read the meters monthly and then have Edison do the actual billing statements.
I have a hard time believing this broker is correct. Has anyone else experienced this or is it OK to submeter and bill-back water/sewer costs to residents in Texas?
