Home / News and Insights / Press / Should I be paid for having a telegraph pole in my garden?

Its worth checking whether there is a written agreement that deals with the use and ownership of the telegraph pole. Any such agreement is commonly known as a wayleave agreement and may deal with your ability to charge for its use. The wayleave agreement might be registered against the title to your land so you should check the Land Registry. The amount payable will usually be specified in the wayleave agreement. If there is no amount specified then, depending on the wording, the original parties to the agreement may have decided for whatever reason that nothing should be payable.

Simon Painter, property disputes partner at BDB Pitmans, discusses the possibility of charging for a wayleave agreement or easing, due to a telegraph pole being situated on your property, in an article for The Sunday Times.
