When you sign your Tenancy Agreement and confirm your move-in date, you need to sign up for electricity to start at your new address on your move-in date. Monthly you will receive an electricity bill from your chosen supplier, for you to pay direct to them.
Often the electricity company will also supply gas if your street has gas supply. But if you have a gas hot water system, or a gas stove top running off gas bottles, you may need to buy your gas bottles for delivery from the local gas company.
You will also receive a water bill from Saltark for the payment of the water going into your property and also for the wastewater leaving your property. In different parts of NZ these bills arrive monthly, or every 2nd month, and sometimes every 3 months. Please be prepared for this and save money so you are ready to pay this bill when it arrives.
NB: All water payments are direct into the Saltark Trust Account (Saltark does not accept cash). Note that your Bank Reference is always your rental address.
