Assuming responsibility for an unoccupied property

If you are assuming responsibility for an unoccupied property,you need to tell us at least two working days’ beforehand. 

If the property has a water meter, the meter will remain in place and we will only bill you for standing charges and charges for surface water drainage.

If the property is unmeasured, you can request us to turn off the supply at the principal boundary stopcock - please tell us at least two days in advance of the start of your responsibility for the property by completing our moving into our area form and tick the Unoccupied property box.

If you request the supply to be turned off, all charges will be waived other than those for surface water drainage (as long as it's economic to bill for this service only). If the property is unmeasured, you can opt to have a meter fitted.

If you don't give us adequate notice, the standard charges will remain payable. No allowances will be made in retrospect or on premises vacant for less than three months.
