Landlords are allowed to pass on the full water consumption costs to tenants provided all the minimum criteria have been met. This includes; the rental premises are individually metered (or water is delivered by vehicle), the rental premises are water efficient, and the tenancy agreement states the tenant must pay for water consumption. In the instance the premises is not water efficient the landlord can pass on any excess water consumption charges in accordance with the terms of the tenancy agreement. As each property is different we recommend asking your property manager prior to commencing your tenancy with us.
