Posted By Topic: Running cables through other units

Feb 26 2019 16:12

Hi there,

First time that I have done new multiple units before.

Just wondering if it is ok to run mains cables/fibre conduits etc through other units walls to get to other units? For example running mains up the ground floor unit wall to get into the 1st floor unit? I'm aware of the firewall penetration protection I will need to do but was just unsure if I had to find alternative routes ie through communal area or run them externally.

Cheers for any help

There are no electrical rules on this. But there might need to be some sort of legal agreement between property owners, if the units are on different titles.
