not being disclosed is on your realtor or the realtor representing the selling party

the original owner of the property or house agreed to allow if for a 1 time payment and it stays for life  regardless if it changes ownership, they essentially own that little piece of land which usually includes a 6 foot perimeter around the equipment, its also agreed that at no time can they be denied access to equipment nor a reasonable path to reach the equipment without requiring notice, these easements are backed by easement laws, you would have better luck getting out of a timeshare than getting out of an easement. laws prohibit blocking, tampering, modifying or destroying any telecommunications equipment
