The customer may be held responsible for all outstanding balances on the property and may have to contact his/her title insurance to facilitate payment. If the property was foreclosed on and purchased through auction at the courthouse, it is strongly recommended that a City Lien search is requested to see if there are outstanding liens/violations on the property.
The City of Margate does not open water and sewer accounts for tenants. The account will always be in the property owner's name. A courtesy copy of the bill can be mailed to the tenant if a valid lease is provided.
It is strongly recommended that the property owner request an e-Bill to monitor if the tenant is paying timely or not.
