    Smile rent fee, electricity fee, water fee, internet fee

    Hello~ I'm so confused about fee, charge and pay..
    Are they correct? or Do I have to say 'charge' instead of 'fee'?
    Can you help me say this naturally please?

    A: I transferred rent fee for this one month yesterday. Did you check it?

    B: Yeah but why didnít you transfer electricity fee, water fee?

    A: You said rent fee all includes all the fees.

    B: I think you are misheard, rent feel just includes internet fee.

    A: Oh, no, Iím sure you said all the fees are including.

    B: If you canít believe it you can look up your lease contract.

    A: Anyway, I can't transfer you this week because I have to pay school fee. I'm out of money.

    Simply say rent, not rent fee. Also, in USA we say water bill, electric bill, etc.

    Try:
    I can't pay you this week because I have to pay tuition.
    Or:
    I can't pay you this week because I have to buy books for class.
