  • Yorkshire Water £250 unpaid month on credit report?

    Hi,

    What do I send to Yorkshire water to get out of this bill & stop them putting more rubbish on my credit report?

    With love

        I refuse to pay it. Why should I pay the same as a 5 person family? I never gave my consent to any water company to pollute my water supply.

          Are you on a water meter or paying rates ? Have you had your bill assessed to your circumstances ? ( for example look here https://www.unitedutilities.com/my-a...rges-20172018/ for the different ways charges are calculated )

          Is your water polluted ? ( sorry not sure what you mean there, if there is an issue with your water quality you need to make a complaint to the water company )

            Well seen as its a private customer, I believe I should have consumer rights? or maybe they are a private company that behave like the council.

              Indeed, but at the moment we're not sure what the issue is that you are having to deal with so it is a little difficult to advise.

                Do you have a water meter? If so, what makes you think you are paying too much? If not, why not get one?

                  If you can provide me with the following information I can try and help.

                  1: are you metered or unmetered?

                  2: If you are metered how much have your last 3 bills been?

                  3: Have you made any form of payment towards the debt at all?

                  4: When you say why are you paying the same as a family of 5, where do you get the figures and how long is the bill for?

                  5: If you are metered, where is the meter (VITAL!). I don't need the exact location, just if it is in the house or outside.

                    What do you mean, pollute your water supply?

                      contacted YW & asked for a breakdown- they got the bill completely wrong.

                        Without knowing what the actual problem is, and how they got it wrong, I can't help.

                        If you could give me a brief outline of what the issue is, and the info I previously asked for, I may be able to.

                          I suspect the OP means the problem has been sorted, as the bill was incorrect.
