Thames Water Indemnity Deed

Residents under whose property the Tideway Tunnel ( the 'Super Sewer') will pass should have received from Thames Water a statement that they will be indemnified by TW from any subsidence damage to their property caused by the tunnelling, providing that claims are made within a specified time after the Tunnel work has taken place (not starting before 2017).They have also offered to sign an indemnity addressed to the owner of each individual property.

This will not make the indemnity any wider or longer-lasting than exists under the general announcement of the indemnity, but it will create an individual document that can be kept with the deeds and therefore conveniently passed on to a purchaser  of the property. In the BPRA area, this should only be applicable to residents on the East side of Abinger Road and a small number of houses at the very north of Woodstock Road (beyond the Fielding Road junction).  If you are unsure, please look at the maps in our Thames Tunnel Update article here.  BPRA members affected should have applied for and signed the individual indemnity document. You are requested to sign and return it within three weeks of receiving it.
