Hello, A question on behalf of a friend – I hope you can help. UK Power networks want to replace posts and cables (they are not too clear what exactly). I think there are old posts and cable already installed on the property land (private property/land) years ago before the property belonged to the current owner which they want to replace and they want access. Do we need by low let them do it and should we request some compensation/rent for the days there will be workers on our private property? I don’t feel it is safe to let anybody into the property without us being home and keep an eye on them. We have outbuildings, animals, items etc.. .It is 5-6 acres private house /land property. There are also trees, grass etc and if they need to destroy any of these we will not be happy. If we give them permission or if we have to give them permission by low, do you know any letter/sample to send them and tell them that if they destroy anything they have to pay compensation or pay anyway for the days they will be here and somebody has to take days off work to be able to open the gate for them and let them in. The 'supervisor' is coming tomorrow to explain more in detail and I have not got a clue what our rights are. Thanks in advance.
