    Who pays for incoming cable?

    I believed that the network co had to pay for cabling up to meter but some of them want to shift costs to the freeholder in flats and just go as far as the cellar.
    that makes electric supply even more complex. From three to four different electrical teams to get supply on and all trying to pass the buck.1 dno 2 freeholder,3 billing co,4 leaseholder.

    Why is there not existing cable from meter area to the flats.

    You need to explain more -- ultimately leaseholders pay for all costs whether directly or indirectly via FH.

    How did this arise, does it involve all flats?

        The ecisting cable was overheating and the dno was trying to pass the buck.

          Still not enough detail to say anything intelligible in response. What cable? Why? All flats? Who installed it? etc....

            Which cable?

            the incoming ?
            From the head to meter?
            from the meter to the switch fuse?
            From the switch fuse to the flat?

              I am unsure of the terms but i mean the cable from the cellar to the meter in the flat.

                It is the supplier's cable. You cannot touch it. Who is responsible for paying however depends on all the other stuff that is unanswered.

                Is it a private meter?

                There are also secondary costs (for example even if actually replacing the wire might be "DNO" responsibility that does not mean they pay for conduits to be opened, accessed, redecorated, if someone damaged the cable or misused the supply....).

                  Tha nks for the reply. Each flat has its own meter with their choice of supplier. The dno has now done repairs on the flat end of the cable so I presume they are taking on the buildin g network. I just suspect they will try and get us to pay if it gets expensive like replacing a big switch on a threephase supply in the cellar of the block.

                    It is not really possible to answer your question without knowing exactly what your lease says, please quote in full:

                    by paul woodford
                    I am joint freeholder with the property upstairs and have had issues with our roof leaking. After many repairs paying my 50% to the cost, the upstairs owner has decided to extend into the loft space and onto 50% of the flat roof at the back. I thought this would reduce the cost to me to the front of...

                    Hi all. I have a question that was not linked to the same subject as my other topic so I figured it would make sense to create a new topic for this one.

                    I'm in the process of purchasing a flat and I have seen on one of the searches 'Environment' one to be specific - state "Further...

                    For ground contamination you would be better to seek out a hydrogeologist as they deal with ground water and contamination issues and its remediation. Much of their work is desk research and then followed by any necessary on site tests.

                    It is likely that full site tests and necessary clean-up...

                    It sounds to me that the Estate Managers are wrong. From what you say, the balcony is exactly that, a balcony, it might be an extension of the downstairs ceiling but at the moment it passes through the wall it becomes your balcony. And, from what you say, you are responsible for its repair.

                    Can 'ceiling' apply to something outside the property? Seems a bit of stretch to me. Suggest you post the relevant part of the lease.

                    It should be a certain proportion of the total cost, surely? I don't see how you can apportion different amounts to different flats.

                    It is going to depend on the exact wording of the lease (definitions of things like "building" and so on). There is no external rule....
