Prior to the passing of the Water Services Bill in November 2017 if you sold your home, you were obliged to ensure that all household water charges were paid. Irish Water then issued a Certificate of Discharge to you so the sale could be completed.

The Water Services Bill 2017 removes the requirement to have paid household water charges to Irish Water and provide evidence of same before selling a home.

If you have such a payment previously this will be refunded to you in full, regardless of the date of payment.
