That depends on the agreement you signed with the owner of the property, though if they occupied the property without your express permission then you may be able to get them to pay for their share of the utilities used during that time.

Much will depend on your agreement, what does your lease state....

Any rent owed or utilities paid should be negotiated and put in writing. Failure to note these specifics in the lease or an addendum will cause you a great deal of frustration.
