Irish Water and selling your house – it’s really uisce beatha !

Mar 9, 2016

When Irish solicitors are selling houses on behalf of clients, we are obliged by law to ensure that there is no outstanding monies due to Irish Water. If we don’t do this and there is a bill, then, the solicitor has to pay it. Despite harsh criticism from the Irish legal profession on introducing such a burden on them, the government forged ahead with the obligation requirement in late 2015.

The obligation still remains irrespective of the recent speculation that the state body might be abolished.
