A west Auckland landlord was billed nearly four times what he expected for water because condensation on the meter made it hard to read.

The bill comes amid transitional changes to the Auckland Council's ratings system under which some homeowners have received much larger rates bills than expected.

The Herald revealed yesterday that residents who have changed the value of their home miss out on a 10 per cent cap on rates increases as the new system is introduced. In another change, customers no longer pay for wastewater as part of their Auckland Council property rates.
