The tenant must pay the costs of living in the house. If you have a rent book, these payments should be written in as a record.  If there is no rent book, you should keep all receipts as proof of payments. Tenants should also pay for services like:

•             electricity and gas

•             telephone and internet

•             rubbish collection

The tenant does not have to pay for any costs that the landlord has willingly agreed in writing to pay.
