Broken mains cable right of way

Recommended Posts

You also can measure between the phases in the consumer unit. It should be around 380-400 volt.

If this is between all three phases but not between one of the phase and neutral, then the neutral link is broken/disconnected.

Check at the meter too.

A really stupid question before you start digging.

 

Have you verified that the dead phases are actually OK at the meter?

 

It wouldn't be the first time that meter connections have come adrift.

 

Yes we asked PEA to double check with our staff and the dead phases are ok at the meter

That's an odd way to phrase that.

 

Are you working with a qualified electrician? What have they said, or recommended?

Even in Thailand there should be something called an Easement for the Utility that gives them the right to dig up and do the replacement or repair as long as they finish and make it whole again.

The issue in this case is that it's not a utility owned cable, it's on the consumer side of the meter so it's the consumer's problem 😞

 

There doesn't seem to be any proper paperwork in place 😞

Section 1352 of the Civil and Commercial Code covers the Right to Access for Utility Purposes such as Water Pipes, Electric Wires, etc.

 

The owner of a piece of land is bound, subject to reasonable compensation being paid him, to allow the laying through his land of water-pipes, drainage pipes, electric wires or similar installations for use of the adjoining land if, without making use of his land they could not be laid or could be laid only at an excessive cost; but he may require that his interest be taken into consideration.

 

In exceptional cases where the installations are to be above ground, he may require that a reasonable proportion of his land, over which such installations are to be laid, shall be bought from him at a price which will cover the value of the land and compensation for any damage arising from sale.

 

Where circumstances are changed, he may require that the installations be removed to such different part of his land as may be suitable to his interests.

 

The cost of removal must be borne by the owner of the adjoining land. However, if the special circumstances of the case so require, the other land owner may be held liable for a reasonable proportion of the cost.

 

In reality it is a matter of how much compensation has to be paid to the condominium.
