In a decision with potentially far-reaching implications for all social landlords, the High Court has ruled that the London Borough of Southwark has for many years been overcharging its tenants for water and sewerage services. The decision opens up the possibility of claims being brought by tenants for recovery of overpaid service charges, and claims for possession based on rent arrears being defended on the grounds that the overpaid charges should be off-set against any arrears. wrote:

The High Court has ruled that a housing association is not liable to compensate tenants for water bills, in the latest case in a saga over alleged overpayments. Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH) was found not to be a “water re-seller” in a case in Manchester’s High Court earlier this month, and was therefore not liable to pay compensation. wrote:
