Customer :

Dear Sir,


Further to your response to my earlier inquiry about my water been cut off.


Basically I own a property in a Campo , the Campo is divided into about 600 individual plots of roughly 5,500m2 each.


Of which 188 plots including mine has dwellings on nearly all the other plots are unoccupied.


Water is supplied from a well in which all property owners are suppose to own shares


Each property owner have to purchase their own water meter and pay for it to be connected to the mains and pay for water usage to the Community Property Owners Association by-monthly according m3 usages.


I have had no problem over the years paying for my metered water usage.


However, about 9 weeks ago my water was cut off, because the Community President decided to level an extra charge for a cottage that was the original dwelling when I purchased the property , some fifteen years ago.


Since purchasing the plot and having build a new family dwelling on the property who’s ESCRITURA is registered with the Town’s “ REGISTRO DE LA PROPIEDAD “ on in which it is categorically state that the old cottage is an extension to the new dwelling.


Indeed, I have being paying the metered water charges without fail when presented but have declined to pay the extra charge hence President have decided to cut my water off.


I have tried to complain to the local OMIC who have stated that they cannot look into my complaint because the dispute is between two individuals.


I think that OMIC is saying that in law the Community is an individual??


However, you have stated in your response to me that only a Company have the authority to cut household water supply for non payment of water bill.


Please find herewith below my latest Suma payment and a letter from the Junta’s Secretary who only acts on the President’s direction .



You can clearly see that they are dividing my plot into two namely 82 and now a non-existence 82a to make their illegal demand.
