hi all

im looking for some advice on dealing with my water bills as im starting to get a bit worried. i havent paid anything off my water bill in six years. every couple of months they send letters or a disconnection notice so i phone them up and offer £40 a month which is all i can afford which they allways refuse as they say they want a lot more.

its starting to get a bit ridiculous now as im owing a few grand and im just worrying what the outcome of it all is going to be, am i going to get disconnected ,taken to court or whatever

thanks in advance for any replies

if it were me i'd pay what you are offering by internet banking using the info on the back of the water bill

they cannot stop you doing that.

 

i don't think they can cut you off once you start doing that.

.....Hi, I think they are NOT allowed to cut you off by Law.....They can take you to court of course but you won't have to attend !

 

 

 

PS: Nor are they allowed to reduce the Pressure.

If you are on benefit or a low income you should make an application to the water company's charitable trust for help paying your water charges.

 

I think your offer seems reasonable, and I doubt that anything would be gained by starting court proceedings. If that does happen you could make an application to the court seeking an order that the claim be struck out, which it should be as it's a waste of the court's time if the matter could have been sorted outside of the justice system, which it can be.
