In the State of Colorado water is a lienable asset, which means that it stays with the property rather than the tenants. For this reason, as of March 1st 2021, water utility accounts will be kept in the property owner's name going forward. Tenant(s) and/or property management companies can be added to the account as additional contacts so that they can receive a copy of the bill and make payments.
The lease or rental agreement between the owner/owner representative and the tenant does not represent an agreement for utility services between the Town of Windsor and the tenant.
The Town is not required to seek payment of utility bills from any person other than the owner of the property served (Town of Windsor Municipal Code Sec. 13-4-20).
The Town of Windsor recognizes the rights and duties of owner/owner representatives and tenants as outlined in federal law, state statutes, safety and housing codes, contract law, and court decisions.
Please note: The Town of Windsor will not activate new accounts on a property that has a delinquent account. All accounts must be paid in full prior to establishing future accounts at the same property.
