Case Histories

Here are just some of the real situations negotiated by Thomas & Thomas over the last 18 months.


A high quality barn conversion in the Midlands including extensive equestrian facilities and approximately 20 hectares of grazing land. The property has three pylons on it, the nearest of which is 120 metres from the house. The owner of the property received an offer from the electricity company of 2,000 plus capitalisation of their wayleave payments. Through use of their unique evidence, Thomas & Thomas are currently negotiating this figure to over 100,000 plus the capitalisation figure.


A pleasant period house in the commuter belt of Essex has a paddock with a large pylon on its boundary, some 150 metres from the house. The owner bought the house at a discount, because of the pylon, approximately four years previously. He was totally unaware that he had a right to make a claim until he contacted Thomas & Thomas. Their negotiations resulted in a settlement of 72,000.
