Infrastructure & Utilities

Hart Scales & Hodges are one of a few firms in the UK with a dedicated infrastructure & utilities offering which means that our clients benefit from knowledgeable and well connected legal representatives enabling quicker and more efficient solutions in completion of their infrastructure and utility matters.

Our Infrastructure & Utilities specialist, Victoria Hazell

Prior to joining Hart Scales & Hodges, our infrastructure and utilities specialist Victoria previously worked for statutory undertakers and utility providers as well as large national and small niche property developer companies. 

It has always been her aim to utilise her previous experience in the industry and her connections in the service provider companies for the benefit of her developer clients as well as her understanding of the commercial aims and goals of property developer companies to ensure that matters are completed on behalf of utility providers as smoothly as possible.

By utilising our knowledge and experience of infrastructure and utility matters and by putting in place processes and procedures along with standard checks, Hart Scales & Hodges will gather certain required documents and information which must be provided, as soon as possible after we receive instruction. This helps to prevent delays to the connections timetable and any dependent transactions (i.e. plot sales).

We deal with agreements, transfers, leases, deeds, bonds, variations and surrenders for the following types of work:

  • Wayleaves
  • Electrical substations and cables
  • Gas tanks and governors and pipelines
  • Heating systems
  • Water & Drainage
  • Pumping Stations
  • Works to the existing highway
  • Adoption of new roads as highway
  • Amenity Land and Open Space
  • Transfers to the Management Company
