No, they are supposed to hold the actual person whose name the water bill is in responsible. Now if the water bill was still in your name while the tenanat was there, then yes, you would be responsible.

If this has happened, you will have to pay the water bill and file suit against the tenant so that you may be reimbursed for your payment of this bill.

Please don't forget to ACCEPT so that I may be compensated for my time.
