What Effects Do Pylons And Lines Have On The Value Of Property?

Pylons and lines cause visual intrusion, concerns over possible health risks, noise, and even electric shocks. All of these factors contribute to a significant loss in value of properties of all types. Thomas & Thomas have developed a unique database to identify the true level in loss in value caused to various property types by the presence of different sizes of pylons and their distance from property.

Our database has enabled us to negotiated settlements with electricity companies that reflect the full loss in value of property caused by the presence of their apparatus. These settlements can run well into hundreds of thousands of pounds.
