1 Dealing with Debt
6. Water bills
Debts to water companies are treated differently from those to gas, electricity and telephone companies. It is illegal for a water company to disconnect you for missing payments. To force you to pay, a water company must get a 'money-only' judgement through a county court claim (see 'The 'money-only' claims procedure').
If the company is awarded a judgement, and you do not pay as ordered, it may apply for:
You should try to make sure you have enough money to pay your water bills in future and get the company to agree to an arrangement you suggest to pay any arrears. If you have received a county court claim, and you accept that you owe the amount of the debt, you should complete the 'admission form' making an offer of payment at a rate you can afford.
