Renter – Move In – Online Form

IMPORTANT:

Owners, or their agent, are responsible for registering details below on behalf of incoming renter(s) at least FIVE business days before the renter moves. Westernport Water will need unrestricted access to the water meter during this time.

If you are a renter you do not have to do anything when moving in to a rental property. Your landlord or property manager will let us know you are moving in and give us your details so we can set up your account.  However, it is the renter’s responsibility to advise Westernport Water when vacating a rental property.

Renters cannot be registered with accounts that belong to an Owner’s Corporation/Dual Occupancy

    E-NOTICES (paperless billing)

    All new Westernport Water accounts for renters will be automatically enrolled for E-Notices (paperless billing), which is our preferred communication method as it has less impact on the environment.

    If your client would like to OPT OUT of E-Notices and receive water bills in the mail, please tick this box:

    DECLARATION ON BEHALF OF RENTER

    As owner/agent of this property, we acknowledge that the renter has been advised that under Section 273 of the Water Act 1989, the renter is liable for the cost of water supplied to the property. The renter also understands that they must provide Westernport Water at least 48 hours notice of occupying or vacating a property. Failure to do so will make the renter liable for the cost of all water to the property until Westernport Water next reads the meter or the end of the billing period in which the vacating occurred – whichever happens first.

    Westernport Water uses this form to collect information, including personal information, from members of the public. The Corporation will use this personal information only for the purpose for which it is collected [or for an associated secondary purpose].
