Discussion in 'Water metering and charges' started by roker, Dec 25, 2016.
I did not pay my last 2 water bills, will this prevent me selling my house?
As I understand it - No, but the charge will be deducted from the sale proceeds.
Just pay the bill. Like most of the rest of us.
In the grand scheme of things, it's a minute amount compared to pay, compared with the legal bill for selling your house.
The sale of your house will not go through until the water bill is settled. Then again you may not be going through a solicitor and your buyer likewise.
How do I pay up to date? How do I contact them?
Telephone: 1890 278 278 (LoCall)
Minicom: 1890 378 378
(For hearing impaired customers with minicom equipment)
Tell them you require a Certificate of Discharge as you are selling your house, they will take any payment due over the phone and the Certificate will be posted out to you.
Can anyone confirm the latest position when selling house / do outstanding charges need to be paid ?
I doubt very much you have to pay any outstanding charge because its a defunct charge, aren't they supposed to be refunding those who paid?
Try selling if you think that.
I have no problem as I paid my bills and anyhow the water charge is minuscule in the grand scheme of selling a property.
Law Society guidance has not changed, water charges must be cleared before the sale can go through.

Yes the water charges need to be paid up to date and proof given to solicitor. Have dealings with 2 recent house sales and both needed proof that charges were paid in the same way the lpt is paid, household charge for 2012 was paid, NPPR was paid or an exemption Cert obtained.
