Non-residential / commercial property owners are responsible for water and sewer bills.
Leasing your property
As the owner of a non-residential property, you are responsible for the water and sewer bills.
Some property owners choose to recover these costs from their tenant as part of the lease agreement. This is a private agreement between you and your tenant.
Buying or selling
- Your solicitor or conveyancer should contact us to request an Information Statement and Special Meter Read. It includes any outstanding charges to be included in the settlement.
- We won't send a final bill. Instead, the account is transferred to the new property owner.
- After settlement your solicitor or conveyancer should send us a Notice of Disposition (if you're selling) or a Notice of Acquisition (if you're buying). We use this to transfer the account to the new owner.
- We don't switch water off between ownership changes.
