advice needed


Hi There

Just a random question. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I am in the process of renting a business unit and the estate agent responsible for the unit brought this dilemma to my attention.

Basically, next to the elcectric meter there is a white pipe which has been cut right through. eon and scottish power have advised that they cannot understand why the pipe has been cut as they do not use a proceedure such as this to suspend services. Is this a costly job to repair and how long would it take repair. Would it mean any underground work ?

Many Thanks

Is there wires in the pipe? Is it just empty? Picture would help.

Typically if used for electric considerations, the pipe would be gray. White PVC indicates water or, more likely, waste. Of course this would depend on who did the installation.
Any idea where it goes? As noted above, a pic and/or more detail will help.

In the US the landlord would be responsible to repair any electrical issues. It's a liability thing and makes sense too.
