It is possible, but not probable. A smart landlord would not want to risk anything tied directly to his/her name not getting paid, especially taxes, insurance, or mortgage. Any of those will create a risk for the landlord if they do not get paid.

Usually not, the landlord usually pays taxes, put it all depends on the agreement between the lessor and the lessee.

It would be unusual for a renter to be paying the taxes. Normally the owners escrow account pays these for the owner. If the owner has no mortgage then they pay them themselves but not the renter. Same with the homeowners insurance.
