Kansas Submetering Laws

Kansas allows landlords and property managers to install submetering systems and bill residents for individualized utility usage.

Residential water, wastewater, electric and gas submetering, as well as RUBS billing, are all largely allowed in Kansas. Electricity and natural gas are regulated by the Kansas Corporation Commission, and may be prohibited under some providers.

As with all states, leases and rental agreements should make explicit who is responsible for utility payments.
