Hafren Dyfrdwy urge landlords to act to avoid costs brought about by regulations

Hafren Dyfrdwy, the new water company formed from the coming together of Dee Valley Water and Severn Trent, are 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 and require the landlords to inform water companies of details of those responsible for the payment of water and/or sewerage charges for their tenanted properties.

Landlords need to 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.

Failure to provide this information may result in Hafren Dyfrdwy exercising their entitlement under the regulations to hold landlords responsible for charges.

Louise Moir from Hafren Dyfrdwy says ‘We want to make sure that the process is easy for landlords and doesn't cause any problems for anyone. The easiest way to send us updates is via Landlord Tap - you can register all your properties online so making changes is quick and easy.'
