New house...

I am moving house on monday, and I just had a pre-look this afternoon.  Everything great so far.  Until I asked the Bellway sales manager who was touring us, where was the BT Master socket.  He pointed to a standard tel socket.
When I mooched around the house infact there were only 2 standard telephone sockets.  No master was found  Embarrassed
Will the engineer install a master when he comes on tuesday to connect the line?  If thats the case, can I select the location where the master socket to be?

Re: New house...

As it's ( I presume ) a new house , it may well have an External NTE http://kitz.co.uk/adsl/btsockets.htm
If it's just a PSTN line install he may well not do anything. If it's a Fibre install then he may replace the first socket with an NTE5 so that he can fit the VDSL faceplate.
Be interesting to hear what he does...

Well there isn't an external NTE Box anywhere.
But in one of my previous posts, I have attached photos of the cable coming from the ground to the property.  Although the engineer will probably have to insert it to the home -
