Pole/Line relocation

I am purchasing property which has an AT&T telecommunications line and easement crossing it which renders a large area of the property unusable. There is a power line and another utility easement across the street and I am checking on the possibility of the line being relocated. Thanks.

Contact the power company. AT&T just leases space on the pole. But be prepared to pay 20-40k out of pocket if they do decide to relocate.

Thanks for the response. Not sure the power company would tell me anything unless they gave me a quote for AT&T to lease space. Their line is not on the property. On my property is all AT&T equipment and the tag on the pole is old enough to still be labeled South Central Bell. The lines shared poles but diverge prior to my property and then join up again down the road. Used to be a farm and the telephone line runs to an old farmhouse up the street.

Not sure what you're calling a large portion as most easements are usually a set number of feet on both sides of the property line.  So if there were a 30ft easement 15 feet would be on your side of the property line.  Plus it's not really unusable you can still put a lawn over it or garden, you just don't want anything over it you can't do without.   Your county will have the exact size and location of the easement, they're the one who control it.
