Getting Irish Water clearance for house sales – Now Abolished !!!

Jan 26, 2018

Solicitors no longer need to deal with Irish Water on arrears of water charges.

Section 48 of the Environment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2015 inserted a section 3A into the Water Services Act 2014 under which an obligation was placed on vendors’ solicitors to discharge any unpaid water charges from proceeds of sale.

Section 5(1)(b)(ii) of the Water Services Act 2017 has now repealed Section 3A of the Water Services Act 2014.  There is no longer an obligation on vendors’ solicitors to make enquiries of Irish Water about amounts due and/or to discharge arrears from sale proceeds
