This Landlord Agreement is available to all persons offering residential space for rent in Vermillion. With the high occupancy turnover in Vermillion, it frequently happens that tenants whose utility accounts are in their names advise the City Finance Office that they are vacating and instruct staff to read the meter and terminate service. There is no choice but to follow their instructions.
Realizing that this creates a risk for you (especially in cold weather), the City offers you the Landlord Agreement. This service allows you to direct Staff to automatically transfer the account to your name with the understanding that the City does not assume the responsibility of liability for consequences following the City's failure, if that should happen, to leave service on at the property. Each time service is transferred to your name, you will be charged the normal service connection fee of $10.00 plus tax for electric service and/or $10.00 for water service. Connection fees not paid at the time of transfer will be added to the monthly account billing. Service fees that are not paid in a timely manner will result in termination of this agreement.
If the service is transferred to your name, you will be responsible for payment of the utility service until you notify Finance Office Staff that you would like the service discontinued or a new tenant assumes responsibility for the service.
For the new tenant to assume responsibility for the service, it is necessary for the tenant to complete a Utility Service Application and pay the utility deposit and service fees. A telephone call from you or the new tenant will not transfer the responsibility to the new tenant. NOTE: For your protection, you should contact the Finance Office to ensure the new tenant has transferred and assumed responsibility for utility service.
If you want service transferred to your name, in case of a vacancy under these circumstances, please complete and submit this Landlord Agreement.
