Can I Charge The Tenants For Water?
Hi I’m Stephanie from Maison Real Estate.
A question that I am often asked is “can I charge my tenant for water usage at my investment property?”.
Under the Residential Tenancies Act the owner can charge the tenant for water used provided that.
- One – It is a condition on the tenancy agreement and
- Two – The property is individually metered and is water efficient.
For a rental property to be water efficient it must meet certain water efficiency criteria and the easiest way to do this is to have a plumber to check and certify your property for water efficiency.
If you would like more information please give me a call.
