No matter where you live, all residents either pay for utilities separately or it is incorporated into their rent. Our program encourages conservation and helps reduce your cost by only paying for what you use. Residents are billed at the same rate as the local provider charges your community. Often times these are commercial rates that result in a substantial savings to residents.

If you live at a community where your bill states "Remit to Leasing Office," please do not remit your payment to OnePoint. Instead, please inquire with your leasing office for further information on the payment options available to you as they will be collecting your payment from you directly.
OnePoint is a "wholesale" billing company. Unlike some retailers or utility providers, we have no margin built into our rate structure to accommodate no-cost credit card processing. Providers offering "free" credit card payments are recovering their costs in the prices they charge consumers for their services. We work very hard in keeping our prices as low as possible for residents. While we want to offer alternative payment methods, we simply will not increase everyone's rates to make this a free service.
As it relates to OnePoint, an online or phone payment fee is applied to any transaction processed through our website or phone payment line. This is also referred to as a "card-not-present" environment meaning that anyone using this service is paying for the convenience of not having to travel to a physical location to make a payment. The amount of our online processing fee is calculated based on the charges incurred by OnePoint from our payment processors.
Online and phone payment fees are commonly found among billing and utility companies. Our customers will find our processing fee to be in line with other municipalities and providers in the area. If you do not wish to pay the fee, please choose another of our many payment options.
We do not charge a deposit. However, at most communities, an account establishment fee is charged. This is a nonrefundable one-time fee that will appear on your first bill.
The water and sewer rates we charge are the same rates that are charged to the community by the local water authority. Often times these are commercial rates that result in a substantial savings to residents. Typically, sewer is billed at a much higher rate than water due to the high cost associated with processing wastewater.
No. We use metering technology that is outside and does not require entrance to your unit.
Water and sewer service are both billed based on readings taken from your water meter. Your sewer consumption is based on the amount of water used in your unit on the principle that what comes out of the faucets as clean water will go back down the drain as dirty water. Typically, sewer is billed at a higher rate because it is more costly to clean and treat wastewater to return it safely to the environment than it is to provide potable drinking water.
If there are no meter readings shown on your bill, this indicates your charges were calculated based on a RUBS (Ratio Utility Billing) method. Using this method, utility charges are calculated based on the size of your home, number of occupants, or both. This is a nationally recognized and approved method of calculating utility charges when it is not physically or economically feasible to meter each unit.
If you see this listed on your billing, it means your community is billed based on a partial allocation system. This means that the meter attached to your unit measures only your hot water usage. Because no one uses just hot water each month, we incorporate a multiplier to calculate your total hot and cold water gallons. This is done by multiplying your monthly hot water usage listed on your bill by the multiplier to get your total billed gallons. We then apply the rate structure listed on your statement to calculate the total bill.
A number of factors can cause a variance in your utility bill from month to month. Did you have an additional guest in your unit this month? Have your usage patterns changed? Was there a change in the rate? Were there drastic changes in the weather? Was the billing period longer? In extreme cases, if your water bill has increased, there is a possibility of a leak. If this is the case, please ask the maintenance staff to check your unit.
Residents are billed at the same rate for their utilities that the community is charged by the local provider. Often times this is a commercial rate that offers substantial savings to residents. These rates are not marked-up to cover the administrative costs associated with the utility billing process. The service fee helps defray the cost of:
- If applicable, reading and maintaining the meters and metering equipment
- Generating, printing, and mailing your bills
- Customer Care
If the entire balance is not paid by the due date on your bill, a late fee may be imposed on your next month's statement. For your convenience, we offer a wide variety of payment methods. Processing times vary by method, so please select the option that best fits your needs and schedule to ensure your payment arrives by the due date.
You may be considered in default of your leasing or HOA agreement, which requires your utility balance to be paid in full when due. Not paying your utility bill is the same as not paying your rent or HOA dues. Late fees on your rent or dues may also be imposed if payment in full is not received by the due date on your bill. Similarly, your rent or dues may be refused until the balance is paid.
We do not offer payment plans or budget billing. We will note your account with the appropriate payment you will be issuing; however, this will not prevent you from receiving any associated late fees or delinquency notices. Your property is billed based on an assigned cycle where all residents' bills are sent out and due on the same date. Unfortunately, this date cannot be changed.
