I have recently bought a property and am re-doing the kitchen. Whilst stripping the old kitchen the builder has come accross some pipes which I ideally want removed. Have attached images of the pipes. These pipes seem to end up below the staircase and are capped over there. So they dont seem to be going anywhere further. Can someone let me know if these are water or gas pipes and if it safe to tamper with them i.e. cut and cap them at the floor level itself.!
