An applicant for service may be subject to the provisions of CVWDC 3.05.300 if a delinquency has occurred at the property or another property owned by the property owner. This provision shall apply to all domestic water services including business and landscape.
The applicant will not be held liable for any unpaid charges from a prior customer or property owner except those unpaid charges which have been filed as a lien against the property by the district under the provisions of Cal. Water Code § 31701.5. A new property owner assuming existing liens on property shall be required to pay all unpaid charges that remain as liens against the property purchased, prior to new domestic water service being established.
