Water Meters

Having a water meter installed means that in addition to the fixed charge the only other money paid is for the water used. It is standard practice for Water Companies to insist that a tenant, if they would like to have a water meter, obtains written permission from their landlord prior to any pre-installation survey being carried out. Should the property have a water meter it should be read at the beginning and end of each tenancy and a record kept of the relevant readings.
