Do you know what simple mistake could make a landlord liable to pay their tenant’s water bill?
Flood and Water Management Act 2010
Under this Act the landlord is required to provide the full names of their tenants & the start date of the tenancy within 21 days.
What are the consequences?
If you don’t – you may become liable to pay the water bill even if your tenancy agreement cites the tenant as the bill payer!
Do you have an agent managing your tenancy?
