If you are a council tenant, the way you pay for water is changing. Instead of paying for it with your rent, Thames Water will send you a water bill. Find out more about the changes at www.camden.gov.uk/payforwater .
Have you told Thames Water how you would like to pay your water bill? Choose how you want to pay, check your personal details are correct and find out if you are eligible for a discount at www.thameswater.co.uk/yourthames .
You could save up to 50% on your water bill with Watersure Plus, a tariff for households earning £19,201 or under (not including any income you get from disability benefits). Find out if you are eligible for a discount at www.thameswater.co.uk/yourthames .
Where a landlord has failed to comply with its repairing obligations under the lease, the leaseholder or tenant may wish to make a claim for a court order and/or damages (compensation). There may also be an element of personal injury if this has occurred as a result of the disrepair.
The Ministry of Justice through the Civil Procedure Rules provide a Housing Disrepair Protocol to be followed if a leaseholder or tenant intends to bring such a claim in England or Wales.
The Protocol describes the conduct that the court will expect the parties to follow in a housing disrepair claim prior to the start of legal proceedings. It is intended to provide a clear framework within which parties to a dispute can attempt to achieve an early and appropriate resolution of the issues.
