The simple answer ... Yes, it is possible for a water borehole to supply more than one property, home or household!
Shared boreholes allow the flexibility of being able to share your borehole water supply with neighbours also allowing you to reduce outgoing bills, split the costs of installation and ensure a clean, reliable freshwater supply.
Sharing of boreholes between two or more houses is highly popular as it cuts the ongoing running costs, however, we would always recommend installing your own for peace of mind long term. Having a shared water borehole system can on limited occasion lead to disagreements in access, running costs and allocation.
When purchasing a new property, some developments already include shared boreholes which provide a benefit to the new homeowners, without having to pay the installation costs after purchasing the new property.
There are definitely benefits or sharing a water borehole as well as a couple of areas to be aware of:
1. Split Costs for Installation
2. Reduced Costs for Repairs
3. Higher Property Value
1. Installation Cost Disputes
2. Repair Cost Disputes
3. Issues when selling a property for new owners to take on the same agreement.
When you come to buy or sell a house with a shared water borehole it is important to ensure that you check the rights to your water supply in the property deeds.
