Landlords

As an owner of a residential tenanted property, you are responsible for paying all the sewer and base water charges and depending on your lease agreement,  your tenants pay the water usage charges.

Most commercial tenants are responsible for paying the total water account (service and usage charges). However, this depends on the lease agreement with your tenant.

Check with your property manager as to how they manage your Hunter Water bill. If you do not have an agent managing your property, you may need to collect the water usage charges from your tenant directly.

You or your managing agent can arrange a meter reading to calculate a tenant’s water usage if they are vacating the property. There is a Miscellaneous Service Fee charged for this service.
