Information Statements

Conveyancers and solicitors should request an information statement from Western Water when processing a property sale or purchase.

The statement lists details such as the fees owing and any encumbrances (such as easements) that Western Water may have on the property. 

Request an information statement

To obtain an information statement:

Information statements can also be requested through the Landata website. Additional costs may apply.

Please note:

  • Water usage charges are not included in information statements. We recommend you request a special meter reading one week prior to settlement to ensure water usage charges can be included in your adjustments at settlement. We don’t send a final bill to the previous property owner.
  • Information statements should be requested for properties without Western Water’s services available to them but are within Melbourne Water’s Waterways and Drainage Boundary.
