    Ask the water company supplying that area.

    It should be noted that since 1990 water companies have had the power to fit a meter on change of occupant. Some companies(the majority?) simply didn't bother to enforce that provision as there was no incentive for them to fit a meter.

    However there is apparently now pressure on these companies to fit meters and it may well be that a meter will be fitted regardless of your wishes.
