Rural properties often rely on private water supplies if not supplied by the water mains network. Our rural property solicitors have extensive experience in the issues which can arise from private water arrangements.

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.

Our private water solicitors have extensive experience in this field and can advise on:

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