Do the same rules apply with underground pipes?
You're usually responsible for the pipes that run underneath your land. These could include water, gas and sewage pipes, as well as electricity and TV cables.
If you notice a leak, trace and access insurance could help pay for the cost of any investigative work to identify the problem. If your drain is damaged, check what your insurance says about drains, pipes and cables. For example, it could provide cover for tree root damage to pipes.
