Where a premises is separately metered by Icon Water and a offical water bill is provided to the tenant, a lessor can seek reimbursement for water consumption charges from the tenant. The lessor is responsible for paying the bill in full initially.
Where there is no separate metering device, as in the case of two houses on the same block, then the lessor has to pay for all services (supply and usage) . This is because the division of the total amount consumed cannot be accurately determined to each set of tenants.
