Does my rent include my electricity, water and sewerage?

  • No; water, sewerage and refuse are all billed separately.
  • Electricity is pre-paid in most buildings and can be bought at any supporting vendor.
  • Water is billed according to the meter readings taken for your unit.
  • Sewerage is billed at a fixed monthly rate according to the City of Johannesburg tariff schedule; this charge increases on 1 July each year.
