Landlord shall furnish, as part of the Lease Agreement, the following utilities only: Water, sewer, and garbage removal. If the cost to Landlord of providing any of said utilities increases for any reason during the term of this Agreement, Resident shall pay as additional rent its share of such increase allocable to the Apartment commencing thirty (30) days after delivery to Resident by Landlord of written notice for same. Under no circumstances shall Landlord be responsible to Resident for any interruption in furnishing services.
"Landlord shall furnish", unless talking about furniture, means nothing on its own. In this context it appears to mean landlord will be responsible for water, sewer and garbage, but within limits, due to the following language. If you are having a difficulty with your landlord you should see a landlord/tenant attorney and explain the entire problem and have the entire lease reviewed. Rarely is an issue so limited that three words can tell the whole story.
