Look at your lease. If your lease says you pay for these things, you do. If you're not sure take it to an attorney to review. If you're liable for these things under your lease (I'll bet you are) and you're unable to pay 100% it's up to them whether or not they want to give you a payment plan, but in today's world coming up w/ nearly all the $ is better than having to take you to court, and if they haven't filed the lawsuit yet, that should save them some money.
