I believe I did not make myself very clear.
I was told (and it was advertised) that water and electricity was ‘ready for re-connection’, but apparently the property has not been lived in for many years, so, I believe, it would be connection.
On a second note would the above phrase not be understood that it only has to be connected without much further work to be done to it? Especially when we had been told that the wiring had all been upgraded. I should be interested, how other members would understand the above phrase, and be grateful for any replies.
