If there is a possible servitude in the documents, but the contractual guide has been put against payment in the deposit, which one is valid? For existing power lines, a Wayleave contract can be terminated over time or by notification from landowners, or if it is no longer binding due to a change in ownership. Landowners will often seek to remove overhead lines, for example if they have a building permit to carry out the development and if the aircraft is a restriction for possible development. 7. How can an appeal be made if a wayleave has been rejected in the form of an e-mail, but not by a formal procedure? Wayleave agreements are a fundamental and decisive part of our life and society. Without it, life would be very difficult and very different from what it is today. Wayleave agreements are essentially a right for an energy company to install, place or operate its equipment above your property in order to supply the UK with electricity for all.
Remember, without a Wayleave agreement on power supply, we wouldn`t be able to sit down tonight and watch TV, or make a coffee during the pub with the kettle or check our emails on pc, the list is almost endless. It is therefore important to understand the concept of a Wayleave agreement and why it exists. But to understand the enormity of the service it offers, it is particularly important, when buying real estate subject to a Wayleave agreement, to check whether this agreement is concluded or not; for the “necessary sheets” cannot be removed under any authority.
