A well-written sharing agreement is like any other contract. It should allow the parties to clearly understand their water rights and facility rights for the well and their obligations under the agreement. Ideally, the agreement will avoid any misunderstanding between the parties, as there is no confusion about the definitions, use, maintenance and repair of the well. If the parties register the agreement, future disputes can be avoided. [17] With good preparation, parties considering a collective agreement can avoid many common problems. If there is a joint or municipal business in the water sector, you might consider donating the well and becoming a water service customer. If you are buying a home with a common well, you must enter into an agreement with other well users to protect access to the water supply and spell out the costs and responsibilities for system maintenance. The parties may, in certain circumstances, suspend the termination of water-related services as part of the agreement. When a party finds a new water source, such as a new well or municipal water source, it may need time to build and commission its new water source.

Agreements that allow parties to use water for a reasonable period of time before putting their new systems online are beneficial. Seasonal factors such as frozen soil in winter or water for landscaping and livestock in summer must also be taken into account. A well agreement should clearly determine who pays, which for regular expenditure. Methods vary depending on the number of people who own the well and the shape of the agreement. Some people are comfortable paying a single well owner directly. Sophisticated agreements often establish a trust fund with a local bank, from which designated parties can withdraw money. The designated party may charge these funds by regular returns to the other parties. However, it can be difficult to divide the bill if some parts use more water than other parts. An agreement can mitigate this problem by requiring the installation of individual water and electricity meters for each water connection and charge based on their actual use. Some well contracts can only operate with a monthly flat fee, although provisions are required to allow for a change in the levy. Developing a well-written sharing agreement will help your clients avoid frequent pitfalls and costly litigation.
