water rates band a and how much your property could be let for to provide bill price
MY WATER CHARGES ARE 605.46 FOR YEAR for a pre war house. so i started questioning this and asked neibours with same house what are they being charged for water.
it came out i was paying 163 pounds more than some and 56 pounds more than a few others. (none where the same on 6 houses i asked)
we all live in the same street we are in band A council tax. same bedrooms etc etc.
So I got on to united utility and asked what band they where using for me. it turns out the don't use a band like martins video . It is base on 1990 what your house can be rented for which comes from the government this fig is shown on your bill as a fixed charge for water and waste water shown on page 2 of your bill. They also went on to tell me if you had a street light outside your house a park behind your house this rentable value could be higher for different houses of the same nature in the street. ABSOLUTLY BONKER!!!
i THEN ASKED CAN YOU PROVIDE ME WITH THE GOV WEB SITE WHERE I CAN CHECK MY RENTAL VALUE . no he couldn't
Maybe on one of your next shows you could elaborate on this more to people. I have also contacted the CCW to get info but they could not point me to a site that gave me my rental value. my only thought is to go to a water meter but these are pre war houses which one line from street feeds two semi detached house.
