the housing agreement states water to be payed by the tenent, but dispite us asking about water charges we have never been given one, so last Aug as a jesture we gave a cheque for £300 toward it, as new owners were taking over, they say they will carry on with the previous agreement of water included in the rent! as our old land lord has taken so long in giving us a bill and a hand written one, so we dont know the water board charges, do we have to pay? Also although we signed the housing agreement with Dorset letting our landlord never signed it.
yes, I also aked the next door neighbour if he had had a water bill, he said no yet the landlord said he had!
