Dozens of housing associations and councils across London and the South East could have to repay millions of pounds to tenants in water charges following a landmark legal case. The High Court case, which could affect as many as 70 local authorities and housing associations covering 375,000 properties, found that a London council had overcharged tenants for their water charges.The decision, published on Friday, means Southwark Council will owe tenants millions in water charge repayments unless it wins an appeal. The ruling could also affect the council’s ability to evict tenants for arrears.
