In two separate meetings this month with Don Robbie (NLA) and Giles Inman (EMPO) the topic of water charges and a new website called 'Landlord Tap' has arisen so I thought I'd share some information with you.
Landlord TAP is an easy to use website () that allows Landlords and Managing Agents, of properties in England & Wales, to provide water companies with details of those responsible for the payment of water and/or sewerage charges for their tenanted properties.
Instead of needing to pick up the phone, or write to your water company, once you are registered, you may use the forms on this website to provide the required information. This information is then passed to the relevant water company automatically, and you will receive a unique transaction receipt reference for your records.
This web site allows you to:
- Add new properties to your portfolio;
- Tell us about changes to tenant details, including changes of tenancy;
- Let us know when a property becomes empty; and inform the water company if you sell or stop managing the property
