Easements, Wayleaves and Telecoms

The negotiation of easements and wayleaves whether by way of statutory powers or for commercial purposes is a specialist skill requiring sector knowledge and expertise.


Pipes, cables and commercial service media are integral to maintaining domestic and commercial supplies of energy, drainage, water and communications. The distribution of liquid and gaseous products and the conveyance of minerals also require rights over individual land ownerships.
