Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
You could contact the utility to see if you can resolve this.You cannot terminate unless they agree to it.The problem is this is how you get your electric, if you terminated here they could refuse service.The title company has liability as does seller, realtor if they built the porch onto the easement and there was no disclosure at time of sale.
You may want to consider suing all involved here if there was a breach of sales contract failure to disclose that the porch intrudes onto the easement here.The seller, inspector, realtor all have liability to you here.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
It would need to have been in the seller disclosure
If you cannot resolve this with utility then you may want to sue here, also diminished value night be a problem since it was not disclosed.
