Utility Easement Restrictions

I have an AT&T utility easement in my back yard and wanted to know if I could have the specific restrictions as I am going to sell my house and want to have the answer for a potential buyer.

Re: Utility Easement Restrictions

Your local regulating body (city, couty, zoning, permitting, etc.)  SHOUYLD have that kind of information on file in their records.

If you cxan't find that information yourself, a bonded company that does asset searches (which you typically need for a home sale to close anyway) should be able to aquire that infomrmation, if no body else can.

 

Juyst a thought.

Typically, as a general rule, ATT does not maintain, or share their easement information. If nothing else, just too many to practically keepo track of.

 

Good luck.

I've never sold a house, but to my understanding, that would be the kind of information you would rely on your real estate agent to find out.

Re: Utility Easement Restrictions

Utility easements are shown on property surveys. If you didn't have one included in your mortgage papers when you bought the home, you'll need to get a property survey. Contact your real estate agent to get one. Some states require one to be done during the sale of a home.
