Default Extra water payments

I pay my water payments monthly through my bank account, which are mainly just a standing order. Back in November '17 I noticed I paid 2 payments in one month - one the standing charge and a second for about 60€. Then the next 6 months were normal again until June '18 when I again paid 2 payments.

Are most people experiencing this? I'm assuming there's been a notification letter that has gone astray from my postbox.

I appreciate I could ring the water company but my Spanish is really poor. Thx

Ive never had that, just one amount each month. Might be worth you asking a friend who speaks Spanish to telephone on your behalf. Doesnt sound right to me

I wondered if it might be because I'm in an apartment as opposed to a house? I'm up at La Colin.

This was last months payment. Maybe i need to check with the bank to find out more background info on who's taking the payment.

Hi Tessy20, I think I can answer your question. We also make two payments to 'Servicio de Gestion Tributaria' in November and June. The smaller amount is for Water & the larger is the EU payment. I would assume it is the same for you. Regards Bryony.
