Renting an apartment with utilities included in Chicago, IL
For some renters, having utility costs added into the rent price is an amenity in itself. This rings true for many people who are looking to rent in Chicago, IL. You can browse Chicago rentals with utilities included, also known as “all bills paid” apartments. Handling fewer bills and not having to interact with utility and service providers is enough reason to make you consider “all bills paid” apartments. As a renter, you won’t have to deal with sudden surprises caused by unpredictable Chicago weather — having to crank up the A/C or turn up the heat more than usual won’t affect your monthly bill as the flat fee is predetermined.
Fewer bills, less hassle
Renting a utilities-included apartment means that utilities will be automatically built into the monthly rent price through a flat fee. The flat fee usually includes the bills for heat, water, electricity and trash pick-up, but the utilities covered may vary depending on the property. So, before moving in, make sure you have a clear understanding of which bills are covered. Cutting off interactions with utility providers also means reducing the vast paperwork you have to deal with upon moving into your new Chicago apartment. Since utility cost responsibility is transferred over to your landlord or property management, another thing to consider is that these rentals are a great option if you have bad or no credit with utility companies. Whether you don’t like dealing with multiple bills on a monthly basis, or simply want someone else handling them, renting an apartment with utilities included can be a life-changing experience.
