Metropolitan District Charges
All properties in Baltimore County abutting sewer or water mains, or deriving benefit from such utilities in any manner, are subject to one or more of the following charges:
- Water and Sewer Benefit Assessments
- Water Distribution Charges
- Sewer Service Charges
- Bay Restoration Fee (BRF)
- Other Metro District Charges
These charges are billed annually on the property tax bill. These charges constitute a lien against the property, assumable by subsequent property owners. Extinguishment of these charges is not required to transfer title. However, extinguishment of certain charges may be required if the property is subdivided into four or more new lots.
