Future bill diversion.
The client supplies H20 with a letter of authorisation to act on behalf of the client in all matters in relation to obtaining further account information, applications to reduce charges where incorrect charges have been levied, applications for refund of overcharges and general account queries.
H20 will write to all relevant water and waste water suppliers to divert all future bills to the H20 office, when this has been completed the water and waste water audit procedure commences.
