At the beginning of August Chorus contractors arrived to install the ETP and ONT at my house in Karori.
When they were about to install the cable from the house to the pole, my neighbour objected stating that this was a new cable and that they, the neighbours, had not granted a easement for it.
My existing telephone and DSL cable crossed the neighbours property, has done for 40 years, and there is no easement registered for this either.
The install has not been completed, and requests to Chorus don't provide any clarity about what will happen next.
Is an easement required, and will Chorus have to get one if they are replacing an existing cable with another?
