    water meter leasehold property

    Hello, I bought a new leasehold flat in February 2018, 2 years ago. Up to now the water meters have not been installed. My tenant does not pay the water because they do not receive the bills. Who is responsible fro water meter installation? The management company does not answer my mails.

    When tenant moves in or out you should write, keep copy, to all utilities and council with dates, names and any relevant meter readings.

    If you failed to , wonder who was responsible
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      You do not need a water meter to receive bills.

      Surely you just informed the water company who was responsible. Or is this is a situation where you as leaseholder are responsible indirectly for bills via payment to the lessor (in which case this issue should have been incorporated into your contract with the tenant). Something does not make sense here.

        In UK, in the new development, who is responsible to install the water meters? Should any lease holder contact the water company and ask them to come and install the water meter? Could you please clarify. Thank you.

          It will depend on the lease Typically the leaseholder or occupier would be responsible.. There may be conditions in the lease that make it impossible. There maybe statute law that overrides such conditions.

            Hi, see this thread and post #2 especially...

            https://forums.landlordzone.co.uk/fo...ent-water-bill

            Turns out all tenants here - well, England anyway, can't remember if whole UK - (that's us leaseholders too) have a legal right to our own metered water in our own name. Unless for some reason the building has specified issues. All in the above thread, innit. Read the lot. Happy ending.
            Do not read my offerings, based purely on my research or experience as a lessee, as legal advice. If you need legal advice please see a solicitor.
