If you've got a leak, you'll want to make sure you get it fixed quickly. Once the leak has been fixed, you may be entitled to make a leakage allowance claim to cover the cost of the escaped water on your bill.
Claiming back the cost of water lost during a leak
After you've had a leak, you may be able to claim back the cost of the lost water on a one-off basis. If you've successfully claimed the leakage allowance in the past, you won't be able to claim again.
There are some checks that we have to do before granting this allowance, and may need to visit you to confirm the location of the repair and gather information.
Leakage Allowance eligibility
If the leak was inside your home, or on private equipment like taps, toilets and boilers we don't give an allowance. Contact your household insurer to cover these kind of claims.
As business and commercial customers are no longer billed by us, you'll need to contact your retailer. They may offer a leakage allowance to you.
