Renters: wake up! Smell the toilet thatâ€™s going into the center of town in Los Osos; itâ€™s going to cost you! If your landlord currently pays your utilities, youâ€™re lucky! But that will only last as long as your lease lasts. Once your landlord is faced with an approximate $6,500 sewer hookup fee plus a $150-$225-plus per month charge placed on his property-tax bill, who is he/she going to took to to pay these charges? Being a landlord is a business, a landlordâ€™s business is to cover his/her debt service.
Letâ€™s get real: The cost of the sewer is going to be passed onto you, in your rent, and no amount of appreciation (no guarantees are there for property appreciation; there is no â€œgivenâ€?). Unless your landlord is a fairly godfather or fairy godmother you will have to pay, one way or another!
P.S., San Luis Obispo County has no rent control (excluding mobile homes), so look for a moving company, real fast! Your landlord can and probably will sell your rental house out from under you, because of the wonderful appreciation he/she has received from the wonderful sewer/downtown toilet stenchpot youâ€™ve paid for, one way or another! Welcome to the high price of misinformation and/or ignorance.
