    Hi BigTeddy
    The landlord would pay for the water service and the waster water service, with the tenant only paying for the water usage (well at least in my experience this is the case).
    The water service and waster water service bills would of course be a tax deduction

    Read the tenancy agreement – pretty clear that the tenant can only be charged for usage or excess usage.

    NSW act will change on 31 january to require meters & water efficiencies before you can charge for use.

    Yep, agree with the guys above. I’m pretty sure that’s also the case in the ACT.

    Is there a set amount of liters used before you charge the excess water used.

    You would have to read your water bill or contact your water provider eg Brisbane City Council or Sydney Water etc.
