FAQ (Electricity Pylons & Electricity Cables)

The cables were there when I purchased the property so why would I be able to claim?

The fact you purchased the property knowing the cables were there does not prevent you from making a claim. Provided the cables go over your land or very close to your boundary and the electricity company only hold the lines on a "Wayleave" agreement you should be eligible to make a claim.

How do I know if the Electricity Company hold the lines under a "Wayleave" agreement or the previous owners have not already claimed?

If you instruct us to act we would determine this for you and since we work on a no win no fee we not charge if we found you were unable to claim.

How much do I have to pay Carrick & Co if my claim is successful?

The amount we charge depends on the electrical equipment on your land.

Any commission or fee that we charge will always be agreed with yourselves and put into writing prior to us acting.

How much do I have to pay if my claim is unsuccessful?

You do not have to pay anything as we work on a no win no fee basis.

How long does the claim process take?

This will vary depending on the Electricity Company that is involved. Most are settled within a year but some can longer than this.
