Lakehaven Water and Sewer District does not bill renters directly. We continue to bill the owner of the property .

Water and sewer charges are associated with the property rather than the occupant who incurs the charge. If you purchase a property and the final bill is not paid at closing, it will become your responsibility. Check with your Escrow Company to make sure they are paying the closing bill.
Lakehaven Water and Sewer District does not stop and start billing when a renter moves in or out. If you read your meter the day the renter moves out and call us with that read, we can give you a verbal calculation of the renter's portion. If you do not get a read you can calculate the renter's portion based on the amount of days in the billing period that the renter was living in your house.
