Fast facts: Rental properties are considered water efficient if certain water fixtures meet standards listed in the Water efficient property page.
At the start of the tenancy agreement, the lessor/agent and tenant should negotiate arrangements for water charging and the frequency of charges.
Water billing periods are unlikely to align with tenancy agreements. It's important that the water meter reading is noted on the Entry condition report (Form 1a) when starting a tenancy, and on the Exit condition report (Form 14a) at the end of the tenancy. The presence of water efficient fittings should be noted on the Entry condition report.
Taking a photo of the water meter at the start and end of a tenancy can help support what you have noted on the condition report forms.
Lessors will receive the water bill and should provide their tenants with a copy of water bills or evidence of water consumption to verify the amount to be charged. Tenants will not be billed directly by water supply authorities.
Tenants must be given 1 month to pay any water bill after receiving the notice from the lessor/agent.
