The utilities are usually paid by the tenant. Your lease dictates who pays what and be sure you have a clear understanding of what utilities you pay before you sign the lease.
Apartment buildings can be a little different, and often the landlord will pay heat, garbage.
But you must understand that if a landlord offered to pay water, some tenants take advantage and abuse this privilage and run up the water bill just because they can!

In brief, read your lease which should clearly state who pays what. Be thankful for any utilities paid by the landlord!! This is a gift!
