Q: I am renting an outbuilding and I pay a set rent to my landlord. Sometimes, he lets the lights and water account go into arrears. If interest accumulates on that amount, am I involved in the sin of interest?
A: If the lights and water was not part of your contract then you are not sinful.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
