Re: Interesting development
A friend of mine went one better than that. He moved into a property that the local water authority insisted did not exist.
He got free water for five years. The fun ended when the water board replaced the main outside and the lads doing the job spotted that there was one more connection to it than their plans admitted to. They did attempt to bill him for the arrears, but he countered with a copy of the letter they'd sent to him, at his address, saying that the address didn't exist so they couldn't and wouldn't bill him.
