Connect water to your new home
Give notice to your current provider
How to connect water to my new home?
Water providers do not disconnect water between tenants, so if you’re moving into an existing property, the water will already be connected.
If you live in Victoria, you will need to ensure that the water provider is notified of the date of your move and has your correct billing details. Providing your details to the water provider will help ensure that both you and the previous tenants are billed correctly.
How much notice do I need to give?
The good news is that water providers do not turn the supply off between tenants, so water will already be connected when you move in.
If you are going to be responsible for paying the water bills, make sure you inform the water provider of your move-in date and details as soon as possible so that they can take a meter reading and ensure both you and the previous occupants are billed correctly.
What if the property is a new property?
If you are building a new home or office you will need to contact the water provider and apply for a connection to their pipes so you have access to water, wastewater and stormwater services.
A builder or plumber normally does this on your behalf and there are usually associated charges. The average cost for a new water main line in Australia ranges between $1500 to $3000.
