Water conveyancing

A conveyancing certificate lists the current balance of the water and sewerage account. A special water meter reading certificate shows the consumption to date since the most recent meter reading. 

Please note: Due to the current COVID-19 mandatory lockdown requirements and the need to prioritise the health and safety of our staff and the community, we are suspending the reading of all water meters. As from 23 August 2021, Icon Water will be unable to physically attend a site to obtain a Special Water meter reading. Given the uncertainty of the situation, we’re not sure how long the suspension will be required.

To provide an accurate Special Water certificate, Icon Water requests a meter reading with supporting photo of the meter (including the meter number) be submitted along with the Special Water request form.



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