Private water

Private water abstraction can cause serious problems where that supply is provided to third party users.  Problems often arise where there is a risk of the supply failing or where the water system needs major repair.  

We have extensive experience in this field and can advise on:

  • Drafting new agreements between users
  • Advising on obligations to pay for water consumed
  • Assessing duties in relation to maintenance of a supply system
  • A landowner’s ability to disconnect supplies
  • Statutory obligations to upgrade residential supplies
  • Regulatory obligations on water testing
