Hi All, Whilst I'm not getting in a tangent, as usual it is what it is, take it on the chin & move on etc, I'm wondering if someone could explain this please, other than"because they can"... Just received latest Watercorp bill for Mandurah property, it says "Your new rateable value of $13780 applies from 1 July 2016" up from $11960, an increase of $1820. How can GRV go up when property prices and rental values/income have fallen considerably? Bi-Monthly Water Service charge has gone from $37.68 to $40.13 Bi-Monthly Sewerage charge has gone from $127.93 to $140.68 Total = $165.61 to $180.81 Bi-Monthly No Doubt, as usual, the local Council will again increase rates by ~4% this year, when its residents asset/s have fallen. What's the consideration that these increases are going to be passed on to tenants, some likely already doing it very tough. Cheers.
