Should you Switch to a Water Meter?

One of the questions we get asked alot by our tenants, landlords and home movers in Barnet is 'should we switch to a water meter'??  Unlike with electricty and gas you cannot move to a cheaper water provider.  If you live in the Barnet area your water provider will be Affinity and you will not be able to change.  It is possible to save by switching to a meter.  With a meter you only pay for what you use instead of the flat rate you will be paying now.  This is based on the size and value of your property. The general rule of thumb is that if you have more bedrooms than people in your property you could pay less with a meter.
