    With regard to utilities in HK - help please

    Are the utilities paid at the end of the month or are some upfront?
    Is there anything I should be forwarned about regarding this issue? Perhaps deposits for phone, etc

    When mentioning utilities, I would consider:

    water
    electricity
    maintenance
    home phone
    cell phone
    internet

    THANKS FOR YOUR HELP

    Those that have a fixed charge are normally charged up front like government rates and management fee. Others whose charges vary on usage will be charged at the end of the charging period (monthly). Hope this helps.
