A word on water bills

Most of our tenants are billed directly by The Water Corporporation for the water they use in their home and it’s their responsibility to pay these bills. Unpaid water bills can put your tenancy at risk because Watercorp passes the cost onto Foundation Housing as your landlord. This can result in you incurring a tenant liability charge and this in turn can lead to a breach. Be careful about how much water you use and keep your bills as low as possible.

And while you can’t avoid a water bill, you can avoid a fine for watering your garden on your non-rostered days or once the winter sprinkler ban is in place.  The Water Corporation will issue an infringement fine to households who are caught using their sprinklers outside of their roster days. Don’t get caught to having to pay more than you have to and keep to your rostered days.
