Usual utilities, phone, cable, electric are paid by the tenants including new account set up fees.
Around here, some renters pay oil/gas and some don't, depends on conditions, ours do and they pay for whatever is in the tank when they moved in.
Our insurance on our house went up 75% because we are not the primary dwellers.
Most renters of homes don't own lawnmowers (expense and headaches at times) and sometimes, they don't want to mow, they want a service to come and do it.
Unkept property = little furry creatures moving in.
Landlords usually hire the service or they do it themselves to keep an eye on things (like my dh).
