Water Usage by Angelina Tucci
How does the water usage invoicing work?
Many owners ask why am I paying for the tenant’s water usage? If you own a house, townhouse or villa and the water is separately metred, then the tenants will be liable to reimburse you for the cost of their water usage. We usually recommend that the water usage accounts come straight to our office and this makes it easier for us to invoice the tenants.
Let us handle it for you!
You’ll just need to tick the box on your management authority form to indicate that you would like the water usage accounts to come directly to us. You don’t need to do anything else – we can contact the water corporation and ask them to send these directly to our office. We can then pay the account on your behalf and invoice the tenants through our system for the cost of the water usage. This can then be reimbursed directly to you.
This means that when the account comes in, we will make the payment from the rental funds so that you will not incur any late fees or penalties.
We definitely recommend that you allow us to handle the payment, and invoicing for the tenant of your water usage accounts. It makes it easier for everyone and also helps to stop your credit rating from being affected if any late payments are made.
