Landlord charging full rent from each individual tenant

Hi, I wanted to know, if the rent for an apartment is $900./mo, that is shared between an engaged couple and another person, can the landlord charge $450. from the couple individually? The couple would be paying for the apartment and the roommate's $450. would be going to the landlord's pocket. He also charges for water, but has no meter to give an accurate estimate of the water bill. Is this legal for him to do? Basically, we're taking his word for it.
