Legislation allowing for compensation to be claimed from the Water Companies is contained within the Water Industry Act 1991.

The act allows any affected business to claim compensation where they can sufficiently demonstrate liability and evidence losses.  Any losses must be fully evidenced and substantiated.

The process of forecasting sales and assessing loss is complex and time consuming and with most of the Water Companies employing specialists to negotiate on their behalf, it is often best to ensure you have professional representation.

The Legislation allowing claims against Gas Companies is contained within The Gas (Street Works) (Compensation of Small Businesses) Regulations 1996.

Compensation under these regulations is afforded only to small businesses, with several criteria having to be met in order to qualify.  In addition, affected businesses must also meet the test of severe loss, having to demonstrate that losses exceed both £500 and 2.5% of the businesses annual turnover.
