What Are The Minimum Requirements For Charging Tenants For Water?

Landlords and rental property owners can only charge tenants for water consumed by providing:

  • the rental property has an individual water meter
  • the rental property has been certified as water-efficient and had a Water Efficiency Certificate issued
  • the signed tenancy agreement specifically states that the tenant must pay for all water consumed

What Gold Coast Water Charges Can a Tenant Be Billed For?

When you receive your property’s quarterly Gold Coat Water bill, there are several charges on the bill, which are:

  • Sewerage Service – Fixed Access Charge: tenants cannot be charged this cost as it is an access fee to connect to the sewer system
  • Water Service – Fixed Access Charge: tenants cannot be charged this cost as it is an access fee to connect to the water distribution system
  • Water Consumption will indicate how many kilolitres have been consumed at $1.346 per kilolitre, and the tenant is responsible for paying this charge.
  • State Bulk Water Price – this will show how many kilolitres have been consumed at $3.371  per kilolitre, and the tenant is responsible for paying this charge.
