Landlords in Wales reminded notify water providers of tenancy changes to avoid costs

Landlords in Wales are being reminded that they must inform their water provider of any tenancy changes within 21 days of the change, specifically full name, address, date of birth and the occupation date of all responsible tenants.

The reminder is being made by Hafren Dyfrdwy, the new water company formed from the coming together of Dee Valley Water and Severn Trent. It is urging landlords to be mindful of the Water Industry (Undertakers Wholly or Mainly in Wales) Non-Owner Occupier Regulations 2014.

These were introduced by the Welsh Assembly Government in 2015.
Failure to provide this information may result in Hafren Dyfrdwy exercising their entitlement under the regulations to hold landlords responsible for charges.
