Our landlord called us and told us we needed to pay her $45 for a solid waste fee.

She never mentioned it before (we have been living here for 9 months) and it is not stated in our lease that we have to pay.

Is this a common practice? We are new to NC, so we don't know how it works here.

it is not a state thing, every water system does it differently.

ask to see the bill. if the bill has your name on it (it probably won't), then you're obligated. if the bill has her name on it, then it is between you and her and whatever contracts or agreements you've signed.

it is a common practice, though. for example, my rental lease is clear that tenants will pay all utility fees.
