Bill to cap liens for unpaid water and sewer bills fails

March 3, 2020

SB 826 (McDougle), which proposes a dollar limit on the lien a locality may place on real estate for unpaid water and sewer bills of tenants or lessees, failed in the House General Laws Committee.  Under current law such lien may be “up to three months of delinquent water and sewer charges.” The bill proposed to cap that amount at $300 on residential properties.
