Hi all, I am in the process of buying a home, and during the survey the title company informed me that my house, which is built on the property line, is built onto a five-foot easement that was given to Reliant. There is another five-foot easement adjacent to my house where the power pole and lines are. Basically my question is what is the risk to me? What could potentially happen? This is what is in the easement document: "The Easement herein granted is described as follows: A right of way for electric power distribution and connection to the townhomes constructed to include installation of service poles and overhead wiring and future maintenance and repair of said facilities."
Hello everyone, I am about to buy a house that has a utility easement running right in the middle of the backyard (16' from back fence). I am sure it is not gas (the gas line easement is clearly marked on survey, 10' from back fence), nor is it electricity (there is an aerial line, also marked on the survey and very visible anyway). Can it be the sewer line for the house? The inspector who looked at the house confirmed there is a sewer line running across the yard (we found the cleanout). We want to dig a pool in the future, and I understand that the sewer line will of course need to be moved and create additional costs. BUT how can i be sure that there is indeed no other utility running there?? What else could possibly be right in the middle of the yard? Cable TV?? I don't want to start work and then find out it is something major... Any ideas? I attach a photo of the cleanout that sits in the middle of the yard, and a photo of the yard where you can see the white cleanout. The easement runs parallel to the back fence, and stretches out all along the yard at the level of where the cleanout is. Thanks a lot!
