I'm looking at buying a property which has its electricity meter in an adjacent agricultural shed which is owned by someone else. Aside from the inconvenience, which I think we can live with, I am slightly concerened by the distance between the meter and the house, which must be about 100m.
We will be getting everything re-wired so would probably replace the cabelling between the meter and fusebox anyway but would be interested to know if there are any technical issues that might cause us problems. We haven't started getting quotes for the work yet so want to know if this is something to look into before we finalise the purchase of the property or if it is relatively straight forward - obvioulsy I don't want to get hit with the cost of moving the meter if it is something we could have used as a barganing tool in the purchase.
After a brief look over the property the arrangement seems to be that the supply comes from a pole mounted transformer into the agrigultural building and then through a separate meter. The cable must then run through the roof space of this agricultural building, probably a length of 100m or so until is spans across to the house and then enters the fuse box.
Any thoughts are welcome.
