Hello sir,

I am in Washington State and am not sure of what may be offered, but I would say that in apartments you should expect that the water, garbage, sewer are paid for and with up-scale apartments you may find that they include basic cable TV and/or internet. Newer apartments almost always have the connections built into the wall. My advice is to ask the manager of the apartments.

Thank you.
