My water rates would be much cheaper for me if i could have a meter installed by thameswater but my landlord does will not grant me permission to get one even thou i said to him that it is free.
Have i got any rights over the properties water service?
I have 11 months of my letting contract to run, anyone out there had similar problem? thanks

Is the water bill in your name?


If your fixed-term tenancy agreement is longer than six months, you don’t need your landlord’s permission to have a meter or change it but your tenancy agreement may require you to ask their permission for alterations to the property.

If your landlord doesn’t agree to you changing the meter, this disagreement could cause problems when renewing the tenancy.
