Water charges and leaks

22 Jul 2021

Lessors are allowed to pass on the full water consumption charges (including bulk water charges) to tenants provided they meet all the minimum criteria. 

At the start of the tenancy agreement, the managing party and tenant should negotiate arrangements for water charging and frequency of charges. 

In this episode of Talking Tenancies, we explore water charges and leaks in a rental property and discuss the rights and responsibilities of tenants and managing parties with RTA Customer Experience Acting Team Leader Michaela Alletsee.
