The City of Margate does not open water and sewer accounts for tenants. The account will always be in the owner of the property's name. We will mail the tenant a courtesy copy of the bill if:
- The owner of the property requests a copy be sent to the tenant by completing the Change of Address Form. Be sure to corripete the bottom section, requesting a duplicate bill be sent to you. This will allow you to monitor if your tenant is paying timely or not.
- The tenant provides the City with a valid lease :
Fax number: (954) 935-5258
Water Billing Department
5790 Margate Blvd
Margate, FL 33063
The City does not collect a deposit from tenants or pursue them for any outstanding balance once they vacate the property. We recommend that the owner collect their own deposit.
At the termination of the lease, it is the owner's responsibility to complete another Change of Address Form removing the tenant from receiving a courtesy copy of the bill.
