    You haven't given us actual consumption figures for your current property so we have no idea what the annual bill will be.

    I have given actual, it probably wasn't clear from my OP. I said that the most recent one on the bill was an estimate but that I have submitted the actual one from the 16th June which was the exact same figure they estimated of 22 units. I only submitted that a couple of days ago so it has not updated on the bills.

    Apologies,  hadn't taken that in. But that does mean your consumption has gone from 2.16 m3 per month to 3m3 per month, although the latter figure is very approximate with only whole m3 readings.

    Ok, well 2.16 per month to 3 is much more easy to swallow than tripling as was said earlier in the thread :).

    EDIT: I just rang them and they have reduced it to £16 based on the actual readings now. All good.

    water consumption can very even though you move the property changes.
    increase or decrease in pressure from old to new property can have a massive change on consumtion.
    also so can types of toilet and taps and showers. 
    so even though you have moved and do everything the same the house is different and could be using more or less.
    moving from a 3 bar pressure shower at 5 minutes use to a 8 bar pressure shower at 5 minutes will use alot more water as the pressure is pushing more water out. it is why water companies use pressure reducing value to lower pressure to reduce the amount of water lost through leaks
