A. All accounts for utilities shall be kept in the name of the fee owner or purchaser of the property and not in the name of the tenant. The property fee owner or purchaser shall be held responsible for utility charges. Nothing in this section shall prevent a tenant from paying a utility bill which has been billed to an owner.
B. Should the identity of the property owner not be known or should the property owner so direct, in writing, the utility bill may be kept in the designation "occupant" and mailed to the subject property, but such accounts shall be the liability of the property owner.
