I have 2 mystery pipes that have been left behind after our build
This is in the middle where I want to have lawn at the back. It looks like some sort of sewer vent, or maybe just an access cover. can I cut if off and put a fixed cap below the surface?? Or do I need to relocate further along the line
This one is at the front. The pipe comes under the footpath and looks like it has been bent up. Looks like an old gas or water pipe, and doesn't look capped. I assume it is OK to cut it off below the surface? maybe I will drill a small hole first to see that nothing escapes??

Not sure about your second one but the first one is a sewer rodding point ( basically an access point if the sewer is blocked sometime in the future)
You can cut this off at ground level and buy a flat cap to go over the top from bunnings for a few dollars

Thanks, I'll do that. A bit annoyed that they put it in the middle of the lawn rather than near the fence
I cut off the second one with an angle grinder (after first drilling a small hole) and all good

thanks for that and i know it will probably be a hassle to chase the other builder. have heard back from the guy who did my pipes and he will call past and fix it himself…

The way mine was designed, agi pipe terminated to a silt pit, from the pit it is then directed to storm drain. It could be your builder haven’t put in the silt pit yet.
