Way leave - worth trying to claim through a company?
13 replies 551 views
I have a low voltage overhead electrical cable running across one end of my garden to my neighbour's house. I have been offered the grand sum of a one off payment of £35 by the power company as a way leave. I am wondering if a company like Sherwill Forbes would be able to negotiate a better deal. I know they will take 20%, but if they get the same offer as me I would only be paying them £7, so nothing ventured nothing gained, right?
Has anyone else tried to get a better way leave offer like this?

Also rural areas (where the OP may live) it can be all overhead cables and believe me those houses sell as it is the "norm" for those areas.
