Non-domestic Water and Waste Disputes

We provide tailored and innovative solutions.


Is your business involved in a dispute with a non-domestic water and waste provider such as Business Stream, or Castle Water? We can help.

The law in this area is complicated, and has changed in fundamental ways in the last few years. Our expert dispute resolution solicitors have acted for a wide variety of clients defending court actions brought by water providers. We understand the key legislation (the Water Services etc. (Scotland) Act 2005) and important decisions (including Business Stream v GSL [2017] SC GLA 54, in which we acted), and so can quickly advise you if you have to pay. If not, we can advise you on the defences open to you.

These could include arguments about whether your business space is an “eligible premises”, whether the water provider has “made arrangements” with you, whether you are jointly and severally liable with an occupier for water costs, and whether you are being charged the correct amount. Given our understanding of the law in this complicated area, we can maximise your chances of resolving a business water dispute quickly and cheaply.

We can work closely with other experts, such as surveyors and plumbers, to ensure that you are not paying more than you should.

Equally, the opening up of the water industry in Scotland has seen the growth of a number of new water and waste providers. If you require advice on your water and waste contracts with non-domestic customers, our experienced dispute resolution solicitors would be happy to assist.
