Underground electricity cables compensation claims is a hot topic with our clients at the moment, with many of them receiving letters from claims companies informing them that they are entitled to a payment.
The powerline advisory group have been receiving an increased number of instructions from homeowners affected by the underground power lines this year, often due to the very competitive 18% (including VAT) commission that we operate at.
As the electrical equipment is buried underground, most homeowners are completely unaware that the apparatus is affecting their property. We have been able to check, free of charge, whether the property does have underground electrical cables passing through and if so, pursue a payment on their behalf. With payments generally ranging from £100 - £200 this is a small windfall that the homeowners were not expecting.
