Our building has four apartments, two of which are rented out. All residents are families while I’m a single person. Our water is on one line and usage is divided by the four units. How does this affect our cost sharing? – Robynne, NSW

Ideally, the costs should be divided by the number of unit entitlements.

We recommend that you check your contract and speak with your strata manager to get more clarity about the cost sharing in your building specifically.
