Are you entitled to a payment?
The electricity company are obliged by law to have an agreement in place to enable them to have their electrical equipment on your property/land. This includes wooden poles, wooden or metal stays and even a right to allow overhead and/or underground electricity lines to cross your land. This agreement is called a Wayleave (which is simply like a lease).
Many of these agreements between home owners and electricity companies do not exist or have been lost, as over time records have not been updated, people have moved house or simply that the electricity company have neglected to contact homeowners etc. It’s possible that there is an agreement in place, in this case the agreement may need updating which we can assist you with.
Once an agreement (wayleave) is in place the electricity company will pay you as the homeowner one of the following: – An small annual rent or a capital sum in return for a longer Agreement.
