RTA webinar: Don’t muddy the waters – understanding water charges

17 February 2020

Utilities form a major part of a tenant’s cost of living and are often considered as additional expenses to the weekly rent. Being surprised by an unexpectedly large water bill in a tenancy, or not having utilities for the property paid on time can cause unnecessary tension between parties, and potentially strain a great relationship.

As a property manager or property owner, how can you confidently pass on water charges and bills, and how do you manage expectations with tenants for on-time payment?

Join us for our next webinar to refresh your knowledge on the rights and responsibilities around water charging, hear practical tips on preventing and de-escalating tenancy disputes early, and we’ll show you how to apply these new learnings in a common water charging dispute scenario.
