Water Charges


Passing on the charge

To be able to pass on water charges to your tenants it is a requirement by law that water efficiency devices are installed at the premises.

The minimum criteria for passing on water usage charges are:

  • the rental premises must be individually metered (or water is delivered by vehicle, such as those with water tanks on rural properties), and
  • the charges must not exceed the amount billed for water usage by the water supplier, and
  • the rental premises must meet required 'water efficiency' standards.
