Landlords must inform Welsh Water
LANDLORDS whose rental properties receive their water and sewage services from Dŵr Cymru/Welsh Water will need to provide information about their tenants to the company under new regulations introduced by the Welsh Government.
These changes, which impact on landlords, letting agent or local authorities, came into effect on January 1 and require landlords to inform Welsh Water about tenants in their properties within 21 days of the tenants moving into the property.
If this is not done, the landlord can become jointly and severally liable with the tenant for any outstanding water and sewerage charges.
