What are the arrangements for charging tenants water usage?

The Residential Tenancy law changed on 31st January 2011 and in order to charge tenants for water usage water restrictors have to be fitted to the shower rose and all other taps in the property. The maximum water flow allowed is 9 litres per minute. Tenants must be given a copy of the water rate notice showing the volume of water used. This information is on the reverse side of the Water Rate notice.
