What does it mean to have no utilities paid by landlord?  If there's a working cistern/water pump at the house, plus pipes for WAPA water source,  Do I would need to call wapa for their water service?  and whose responsibility to fix water pump if it stops working?

You will have to apply for  power at WAPA - sounds like the landlord now has Wapa water already? and you may get a water bill from the landlord-- if you want WiFi, Cable service, satellite service, landline phone you will have to apply to the relevant supplier. All will also require a security deposit I think.

The landlord should be responsible for a working water pump - it will require WAPA.

I do suggest you learn all about the water supply, gutters, pumps, valves, cistern --- for your own benefit and how to fix a pump that has lost its prime for sure. Read the lease to find out what utilities you or the landlord is responsible for.

Exit Zero is correct...utilities are generally the responsibility of the tenant unless the lease says otherwise. But, the water pump is most likely a landlord responsibility.

Even with a cistern, the landlord can still charge for water. I have a water meter on the service to the apartment in my house and charge the same rate as WAPA. That water pump uses electricity!

I am curious are the residents of Enfield Green and Whim impacted by the pollution caused by the Limetree malfunction?
