When should you let us know?Couple moving setee in their new home

Please can you let us know as soon as you've moved into your new property - the sooner the better really to make sure we can bill you correctly.

If your new or old home has a water meter it's also important that you give us the latest readings too. Simply add the readings when submitting the forms above.

Instead of letting the kids get under your feet why not enlist them to help?  Print out stickers for your little helpers!
