Under the Residential Tenancies Act, Clause 46 states ‘The tenant shall be responsible for all charges associated with the consumption of services supplied to the premises, including electricity, gas, water and telephone.'
Water consumption accounts will be sent to you quarterly and unless you advise us otherwise the payment will be direct debited with your next rental payment from the date of the invoice.
The payment of water consumed by you does not however mean that you are not responsible for the watering of lawns and gardens.
Clause 64(B) states ‘The tenant shall leave the premises in substantially the same condition as the premises were in at the commencement of the tenancy agreement, fair wear and tear excepted.’
If the gardens have been damaged by lack of water you will be held responsible at the end of your tenancy.
