What does "Todo el alquiler incluye las facturas" mean?
All the rent includes the bills.

This relates to:
Using todo, toda, todos and todas to say all, every and the whole (indefinite adjectives) -

Hola Bonnie


This sentence means that "the amount of money paid for rent [by someone]" = in Spanish also referred to as "el alquiler", is including bills for electricity, gas, water... 


When you want to rent a flat for example in Spain, you would ask the tenant "¿Cuánto es el alquiler? and he/she would reply something like "El alquiler es 500 euros, incluyendo facturas".


I hope this made it a bit clearer.

Sí, gracias. I think in English you'd have to specify that, or "including water, gas and electricity".

"The rent includes all [utility] bills" is probably more idiomatic English, but not sure if that is how it's said in the US?

I don't either. We own our house, and i lived in Denmark for many years, where i think i paid most of my own bills for the one rental i remember!
