Owners of residential buildings have lately been informing tenants to bear the cost of electricity and water usage, mainly due to the decision to be enforced on Tuesday, August 22 to increase the electricity and water tariffs based on Law No. 20/2016.

They sent the message across to their tenants either through the building caretakers or in notices that were stuck on the main entrances of the residential buildings. According to the law, electricity prices will increase from two fils per kilowatt to five fils per kilowatt. Water prices will increase from 800 fils to KD 1 per imperial gallon.

Number of residential building owners and tenants were interviewed about this matter. Mutlaq Al-Harbi is the owner of a residential building who informed his tenants about them having to bear the electricity and water bills. He stressed the keenness of all citizens including him to respect and abide by the law.

Al-Harbi explained that it is up to the state to take suitable decisions concerning increasing the electricity and water charges or charges of medical services offered to expatriates. In the same way, owners of residential buildings also have the right to take suitable decisions in their favor.
