Water conveyancing

Under the Utilities Act 2000, the owner of a premises is liable for any undischarged water and sewerage charges of a previous owner. So, if you sell or transfer a premises, you, or your solicitor or conveyancer, should request a special meter reading and conveyancing certificate so that the water and sewerage account can be appropriately apportioned.

Request for charges
A conveyancing certificate lists the current balance of the water and sewerage account. Solicitors or conveyancers can request information on the outstanding charges relating to a property or properties. To complete this form you will need details of the property including suburb, section, block and unit numbers.

Request for special water meter reading
A special water meter reading certificate shows the consumption to date since the most recent meter reading. Solicitors or conveyancers can request information on the outstanding charges relating to a property or properties. To complete this form you will need details of the property including suburb, section, block and unit numbers.
