         If a landlord chooses to provide free water for his tenants, then that is written into the lease agreement.  If the landlord is not paying for the water, then it's up to the tenant to contact the water company and make arrangements to pay.  The lanlord does not act as an abitrary third party between the tenant and the water company.  Also, it's illegal for a landlord to shut off the water to a tenant because the tenant hasn't paid for the water.  The landlord must go through the courts to recover his money and/or evict the tenant for non-payment.  If the landlord does decide to sue throught the courts, then he must first serve the tenant with a 3-day notice ( and provide proof of this to the court) before he files a formal small claims suit.
