Unexpected high bills and leaks

  • In some circumstances, residential customers may be eligible to apply for once-off assistance to help with water usage costs caused by a hidden (concealed) leak. Find out if you are eligible and how to apply for a Concealed Leak Allowance.

  • Business and non-residential customers are not eligible for a Concealed Leak allowance, but can apply for a Sewerage Usage Allowance

Updating account details and authorities

Buying, selling and moving

  • We don't send you a final Unitywater bill for your charges up to the property's settlement date. Instead, any outstanding charges or credits on your Unitywater account should be taken care of during the buying and selling (settlement) process, which is organised by your conveyancing solicitor.

  • Find out more on our selling a property page.

Pensioner Water Subsidy

  • Eligible pensioners can receive a Pensioner Water Subsidy of up to $120 per year off their water bill.  

  • This is up to $30 every quarter and is listed  as a ‘Pensioner Rebate’ on Page 2 of your water and sewerage bill.

  • It is only allowed on one property at a time.

  • It is applied to your Unitywater bill from the date you submitted your Pensioner Water Subsidy application form, on a pro rata basis. For example, if you applied half way through your property’s quarterly billing period, your next bill will have only half of the subsidy amount applied (i.e. up to $15), and all future bills will have the full subsidy amount (up to $30 per quarter).  

  • The Pensioner Water Subsidy is applied to your Unitywater bill, but the amount and eligibility criteria are determined and funded by the Queensland Government.

  • Find out more about the Queensland Government Water Subsidy.

  • The subsidy is allowed on only one property at a time and cannot be claimed on any additional properties you may have:

    • If you currently don't receive the Pension Water Subsidy for your owner-occupied principal place of residence, you can apply as soon as you become eligible and have received your concession card details.

    • If you already receive the subsidy for your owner-occupied residence and then you move to a new one, you need to reapply for the subsidy, as it does not move with you.  However, you can only reapply after we have set up the Unitywater account for your new property and sent you a 'Welcome' email or letter to advise you of your new account details.

  • Unfortunately, we can’t backdate the Pensioner Water Subsidy to start any earlier than the date you applied for the subsidy (even if you were eligible before this time).

  • The subsidy can only be applied to your bill from the date you submitted your Pensioner Water Subsidy application form, on a pro rata basis. For example, if you applied half way through your property’s quarterly billing period, your next bill will have only half of the subsidy amount applied (i.e. up to $15), and all future bills will have the full subsidy amount (up to $30 per quarter).  

  • Find out more about the Pensioner Water Subsidy.

  • This Pensioner Water Subsidy is not automatically transferred to your new Unitywater account and bills if you move from one property to another.

  • It’s very important that you apply again using the Pensioner Water Subsidy online application form.

  • Unfortunately, tenants who pay water usage charges can’t apply for the Pensioner Water Subsidy – only property owners or ‘life tenants’ are eligible.
