What happens if my house is going to be separated into flats?
Each flat will require a metered supply, even if the house was previously unmetered. If the house was previously metered you can either have this disconnected or utilise the supply for one of the flats, ensuring any internal plumbing amendments are made so it only serves one flat.
Usually each flat would have a new connection to our main. However, providing the building remains in single ownership and the flats are leasehold then a single larger diameter connection to our water main which is split internally via a manifold may be possible. This enables an internal meter for each flat or apartment.
More information is available in our Internal Meter Installation Terms and Conditions.
Where the flats are separately owned each will require an independent new metered connection to our main and in this case bills would be issued individually.
