When you purchase a property your solicitor will complete the necessary paperwork to transfer the Title of the property into your name/s. Icon Water is subsequently notified by the Land Titles office of the transfer and we will establish a water and sewerage account in the name/s as listed on the Title.
Once your account has been established we will send you a welcome pack with information about any debt that may have accrued since the issue of a conveyancing certificate; and our services and the network.
When buying or selling a home your Solicitor or Conveyancer can request a conveyancing certificate and a special meter reading. A conveyancing certificate will detail any outstanding arrears so that allowances can be made in final settlement.
Requesting a special read is standard good practice so that any usage can be appropriately apportioned between the seller and buyer.
New land owners
