DC Water & Sewer Authority
Meets regularly with DC Water officials to discuss policies and procedures for billing practices, account balance information, lien attachment and enforcement issues. Unpaid water and sewer bills may become liens affecting your title. Your settlement agent will also help to switch over water accounts to a new buyer after the sale of property. For that reason, DCLTA plays a crucial role in communicating with DC Water about practices and policies that affect the title industry.
