Not sure if this is right place to ask, but anyway.

Long story short, signed for BT and are getting the equipment delivered tomorrow. This building used to be a pub and has been converted into flats.

BT have run their check and have said there’s definitely a line somewhere in the flat, however I have looked in every room to no avail. It’s possible that the phone point is behind a plasterboard wall somewhere. They said they will get an engineer out to find the line/install one but I might have to wait a couple weeks.

I know it’s just the case of trying to locate where it is in the flat but I don’t know how to approach this. I am am electrician and I know if it wasn’t low voltage then I could probably find it. However as it’s low voltage cable I don’t know the process of finding it, this isn’t really my area of expertise.

Does anyone know an easy way to detect where this would be? If I can find it myself without having to get an engineer out it would be great. Maybe there’s some sort of tool that can detect the cable? Like a cable finder however as I said it’s low voltage so this won’t work
