Your unit is fitted with an individual hot water unit servicing your unit only. This unit is located within the laundry. As a tenant, gas usage for this is included in your rent. As an owner the gas consumption is included in your levies.

Depending on the location of your unit, situated underneath the kitchen benchtop, bathroom vanity or laundry cabinet is a tap which turns on/off the supply of cold water to your unit. When the tap is turned off, no water will flow to any fixtures within your unit, including the hot water unit.


Your unit has gas supplied to the kitchen cooktop and to a bayonet point in the lounge room for heating.
Located underneath the kitchen benchtop is the yellow shut-off valve for the gas. When this valve is in the closed position, no gas will flow to either the cooktop or the bayonet point.


Located in the cupboard above the fridge space in your kitchen is your unit’s electrical distribution board. This board distributes the incoming electricity supply into the various electrical circuits within your unit. Housed within the board are circuit switches and associated fuses.

To ensure all electrical fixtures are connected to power, all switches on the distribution board are to be pushed up to the “on” position.

If you lose power on any one particular circuit in your apartment at any time, check the circuit board above the fridge and it is likely that a circuit has tripped to the off position. If the circuit will not turn back on, it is recommended to arrange an electrician to assist. If you have lost power to the entire apartment, this may be related to your apartment only, in which case it is recommended that you call an electrician in the first instance. If the power outage appears to be a building-wide issue, you should contact your electricity supplier in the first instance to check if there are any outages in the area; if not then contact the Building Manager for assistance.
