Electricity is such a fundamental part of life that its supply is often taken for granted. However the reality is that the rights for electricity lines are arguably the weakest of all utilities, with the vast majority covered by Wayleaves.

The rights to run electricity lines across private land needs to be properly investigated and qualified. Large areas of land already are restricted by electricity lines, and the Government’s plans for substantial new house building, will create a great deal of interest in this area. Therefore the need for well-informed and experienced advice for landowners has never been more critical.

There are few experienced practitioners in this field, but there are many new entrants pushing up fees and often providing inappropriate advice. The first book of its type, it brings together both legal and surveying experience, reviews all the relevant law and practice in one place, and provides key insight into: (i) Defining electricity Wayleave, (ii) Handling the relevant statutory and Lands Tribunal procedures and (iii) Valuation of Wayleaves.

Case studies are used to illustrate the relevant rules and legislation, allowing non-specialists to give a considered opinion to clients on action to take to avoid uncertainty for all involved.
