Welcome to BT Property Search (BTPS)
This search facility enables you to check if your proposals, including demolition or construction, might affect BT plc (BT) assets in the UK. It is the gateway to a streamlined process which will allow you to proceed with your proposals where they do not impact on BT assets, subject to prior written agreement on costs and design etc.
In this way, you can mitigate your risk both of damage to BT assets, and your own, and limit unnecessary costs and/or delay.
BT assets consist of various types of property, including Telephone Exchanges and cable connections to and from them, above and below ground.
You will receive a Search Result by email within one working day.
Where there may be a potential impact, the Search Result will indicate this, and we will use the information provided by you during the registration process to contact you and discuss your proposals in more detail.
You should not proceed with any demolition or construction work until we have agreed terms which protect the relevant BT assets.
Openreach maintain a search facility which is designed to identify cables located in the public highway and elsewhere and you will continue to need to conduct a search via their facility. You can do this here.
