Tower lines are running through my property with no easement

by K. Rasmussen
( USA)

We have a cell tower next to our property. But the actual lines run through the center of our property. Do we have any rights to have these lines moved or to be compensated for the use of our property? The bank has informed us that we can not take a loan out to build on our property because these lines are running through the center of the property. The Cable company decided not to relocate the lines due to the high cost involved. It was estimated at $80,000.00 to move the lines over about 15 feet.(Pg&E and At&t are also on the lines.) Thank you.

You must pull a full title report
by: Sean - Airwaves

They must have an easement. When the lines were put up they must have signed an easement with the owner for a perpetual easement for a single, lump sum payment. I do not understand why this power line would deter the bank from letting you develop the parcel since many properties have this type of development on them. Have an attorney pull full title to the premise and then have an architect plot the easement. The attorney can review the title and tell you your rights (maybe AT&T is on the tower but the easement is insufficient for their use). Good Luck.
