    for a 2 bed flat with 2 people, how much would water, gas and electricity come to per month.

    trying to budget and have estimated £70 per month each, but I feel that might be a bit high?

    Water rate is too high. Gas/elec is too low.

    Water is unlikely to be more than £20pm. Gas/Elec is around £30-£40 each.

    Do you have a swimming pool that you empty and refill every single day?! £42 is a huge water bill for 2 people.

    It isnt metered..its via rateable value. We could probably do with a water meter. I'd say its typical and obviously includes foul water disposal.

    Deff get a meter fitted then. Our estimated bill for a 3 bedroomed house was still only £32 a month. On the meter its now dropped to £15,
