Why have I been billed for water and sewer usage for 3 months for a house I just bought 1 month ago?
Water and sewer bills are pro-rated the same as real estate property tax bills by the settlement officer at time of settlement. Check your settlement sheet you received at that time. You should have been given money from the seller to pay for the water and sewer usage during the period the seller owned the property.
