 Did you know that unless a landlord posses a valid water efficiency certificate they are liable to pay their tenant’s water bill! According to the Residential Tenancies Authority, tenants can only be charged for water consumption if:

  • the rental property is individually metered (or water is delivered by vehicle), and
  • the property is water efficient, and
  • the tenancy agreement states the tenant must pay for water consumption

The property owner must pay all fixed charges. The tenant cannot be charged more than the billable amount.

If the landlord wishes to pass water consumption costs onto their tenant/s it is their, or the property managers, responsibility to ensure the property has a water compliance certificate QLD issued by a licensed plumber.

We can come inspect your property and ensure that it meets the required water efficiency standard. If your property doesn’t meet the standard there are some simple, quick, cost effective solutions we can provide to ensure that you can obtain the certificate and pass the full water consumption costs onto your tenant. Be a savvy and water wise landlord and obtain a water efficiency certificate today!
