Besides, can Electric Company Enter your property?
For instance, if there is an electric line that runs through your property, you cannot take it down. If the utility company does not have an easement and is trespassing, you can file a trespass suit. However, you should make sure the utility company does not have an implied easement or an easement by prescriptive use.
Beside above, can you build in a utility easement? Yes, you can build on a property easement, even a utility easement. The dominant estate owning the easement may need to access the easement. Anything, from a house addition down to fences, shrubs, and children's playsets might need to be removed in this event.
Also asked, how do I find utility easements on my property?
If you want to know where any utility easements are located on your property, call the utility company. Or you can go to the county land records office or city hall and ask a clerk to show you a map of the easement locations. A survey of the property will also show the location of utility easements.
Can a utility easement be moved?
Easements appurtenant are adjacent to the servient estate (the underlying land). If the dominant estate (the property which enjoys the benefit of an easement over the servient estate) is sold or otherwise transferred to another, the easement over the servient land is transferred with it.
