Tenancy – water charges

Landlords are allowed to pass on the full cost of water consumption provided:
•    the rental premises are individually metered, and
•    the tenancy agreement states the tenant must pay for water consumption.

However, a landlord cannot ask a tenant to pay for charges, levies, rates or taxes that enable the supply of electricity or water to the premises.​
