Update on right2water
If after 12 months you have not entered into a payment plan with Irish Water, or have not complied with a payment plan, there will be a late payment fee of €30 a year for a single-adult household and €60 a year for a household with two or more adults.
Non payment does not affect your credit rating.
Under the recently introduced civil debt bill, a creditor will first have to obtain a judgment debt order from the District Court, as at present, which establishes that there is an enforceable debt. The provisions of the Bill are applicable to debts over €500 and less than €4,000 in value. These new options will be primarily of use to small businesses, tradespeople and the self employed by giving them a new type of access to the Courts to get payment of their debts from those who can afford to pay, but won’t pay. If you are not in a position to pay, the civil debt cannot be made apply to you.
Mass non-payment makes it practically impossible to bring over 57% and rising of the population to court.
