By State Law (Government Code section 54347, Water Code section 22079), Carmichael Water District has the right to seek payment from the legal property owner for unpaid water service account balances. Unpaid balances on water accounts may be applied to the real property, and could result in a lien being placed against the property title.
For this reason, the District requires the Owner to keep the account in their name, but as courtesy, the District will bill their Tenant/Management. The District charges a non-refundable application fee for the submission of this agreement in the amount set forth in the District’s Fiscal Year Fee Schedule. The District will not prorate any bills/charges when a Tenant/Management changes.
Property owners are responsible to notify the District of any changes to this agreement . The District does not come between any Tenant/Management owner issues that may arise by signing this agreement. If the District determines that the payment history of the Tenant/Management is unacceptable, the District may terminate this agreement at any time without notice.
