  • I would move. It might come out to the same price. But if the neighborhood is better I say leave. But you never know it might cheaper.

  • Call the city and Ask them if they can give you an estimated of the bill water and electricity, they do those things, tell them you want to rent a house give them directions and you can be sure about how much will be the bill without sorpesas!!! good luck!!

  • I'd be concerned about the shared utilities. What if those you're sharing them with don't care and leave all the lights on all night? I would do as Lusilmar suggested and get an estimated bill.
