We have a local utility district asking the legal owners of the property in fee to sign a 10' wide permanent easement
as well as an additional 15' temporary construction
easement adjacent to the permanent easement. The area of the permanent easement includes approximately 50% of my asphalt driveway and the temporary easement will give the utility easement the right to remove three mature trees and additional shrubs.
JA: What property use does the easement allow?
Customer: The easement allows the utility to install an additional water line as well as a gas line. This easement area is adjacent to an existing 15' permanent easement and I don't see the need for an additional 10' wide permanent easement and a 15' wide temporary construction easement. I realize the utility has power to acquire through legal procedures. However within the easement document, the company has to repair damages
but their history has not been acceptable in this area.
JA: Where is the property located?
Customer: Tipton County Tennessee
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not at this time
