Electricity Wayleaves

The national specialists in electricity power line compensation claims for landowners.

If you wish to bring a claim against a power company it is vital that you use a law firm with the necessary in-depth knowledge in this specialist field.

We have an outstanding track record of achieving successful outcomes for landowners in electricity line compensation claims including acting for Arnold White Estates in their successful £5.8m landmark case.

We can act on your behalf in connection with necessary wayleave hearings where you intend to resist the grant of a new statutory wayleave.

We are specialists in acting for owners and developers of residential development sites. This is a complex area where the correct timing of the service of notices and planning applications is essential to ensure that the available compensation is maximised.

"My experience of Gosschalks has been extremely positive. I contacted Matthew Fletcher after my non-specialist solicitor gave advice over a land transfer involving power line compensation. When contested this advice proved to be wanting and I underwent two months of worry before contacting Gosschalks. They immediately reassured me and matters were sorted within days. Since then they have given immediate, sound, authoritative and reliable information when it matters. It definitely pays to go to the experts first and Gosschalks certainly has the pylon expertise necessary to counter the power of the electricity companies."

We regularly act on behalf of purchasers of commercial and residential sites affected by power lines abd negotiate terms of settlement agreements with utility companies including wayleaves/easements.

We have an extremely strong track record in dealing with referrals to the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) to recover compensation where legal fees are usually recoverable from the power company and we have established relationships with specialist surveyors, leading barristers and mediators throughout the UK.

Following the outcome of his landmark £5.8m case handled by Gosschalks, Chief Executive of Arnold White Estates, Bob Williams commented...
