    Wayleave 18th Apr 17 at 9:03 PM
    Hi,
    Someone wants to put an electric power cable through my garden. I have said no.
    I've heard that the past owners have signed a wayleave.

    Does this count??

    If it counted, why would anyone need to ask you?

    If the wayleave is associated with the property (as opposed to the owner), and asuming the person wishing to put an electric power cable through your garden is the person who benefits from the wayleave, then - yes.

    Are you talking about an individual person wanting to run the poer cable, or are you talking about a proper power company?.

    If the latter, then you might be entitled to a yearly fee for the use of your ground for the cable run.

    Hearing something and seeing the proof are two different things.

    Wayleave agreements normally run with the property, so any that exist should be with the legal documentation you were supplied on purchase. If one was formally agreed with the previous owner, you will be bound by it.

    Power suppliers do pay an annual wayleave fee, but for a single cable and no poles, the amount will be very small.

    Or they may have paid a one off fee to a previous owner
