Re: Easements question

said by sk1939:

The house I grew up in was strange in that sense, it had literally no easements. The telephone poles both skipped my house and the one next to me. When the county went to put in sidewalks (unincorporated) they again stopped at the house before mine. There were a few built around the same time, and one built in 1910 a street over or two that have the same thing.

If you had electric, water, or any other city services they had easement that's just how it works. They own the line to your property and the rights to maintain it.

Homeowner owns the line up to the street (found that when we had a tree root issue in the cast iron drain line), and electrics up to the masthead (above ground). I don't know about water an NG though admittedly.
