Question: So at my apartments I pay my own srp bill And this month I received a second bill from the apartments saying I need to pay extra for power that they use in the clubhouse and pool area. Is that legal???
Answer: As a general rule, a landlord is permitted to include in a rental agreement any fee or other term or condition he chooses, so long as that fee or other term or condition (or its application) does not violate the law (A.R.S. 33-1314). However, a tenant cannot be compelled to pay a new fee until the current rental agreement expires, unless the tenant agreed in writing to a potential new fee in the original rental agreement.
