Wayleaves & Property Rights
Although the law does not define the word “wayleave”, it is a conventional term to describe the arrangement that exist, with rights and obligations, when powers are taken to construct, use and maintain apparatus, such as pipes and cables, in, on or over land. 

Scottish Land & Estates, along with other farming organisations, are continually involved in meetings with the power companies. We aim to encourage good relationships between landowners and the companies to ensure infrastructure improvements can take place while grantor's are treated and compensated fairly.
Scottish Land & Estates have not agreed to recommended rental or compensation rates. These should be negotiated on an individual basis with porfessional assistance where required.
