Moving in or out

Tenants

As a tenant it’s your responsibility to let us know you’re moving out of a property. Please provide at least two business days’ notice so we can read your meter and close your account at this property. This will avoid you being liable for usage charges until the next meter read is taken at the property.

If you are moving out complete the online form here.

If you’re moving in, it’s the responsibility of your landlord or property manager to let us know and provide us with your details.

Please remember if you hold an eligible concession card, be sure to let us know when you move so you can continue to receive your discount
