Rateable value -

I have just received my water bill from United Utilities for the period April 2016 to March 2017.

I am on water rates, and wondered how what I am paying per month compares to other people on water rates.

The total for the year is £271.76, and the bill mentions my rateable value of £83.00 per year.#

Are these figures low or high for a 3 bedroom mid-terrace house?

Thanks

    They are low rates .
    But rates vary with supplier .
  • A rateable value of 132 in Anglian Water's region produces an annual bill for a 3 bedroom terrace house in excess of £550 so £271 is reasonable in my view.
    The alternative is to go onto metered water supply which in my case has saved me £200+ a year. Might be worth you checking it out for your house.

    £271 is cheap for a 3 bed house.
