For anyone renting or knowledgeable of renting laws in Northwest Ohio

Does anyone know who is responsible for the water/sewer fees when renting an apartment? I live in Lucas county Ohio and everyone i've talked to was shocked to hear i'm billed a water/sewer fee, trash pick-up fee and service fee on top of my rent each month for my apartment. Most of the people I've talked to keep telling me its illegal to charge those fees unless the property is considered a house or condo, however I can't find a law anywhere that backs that position up. Does anyone who lives around this area know if this notion is true or not, or a website where I could find my answer?
