Construction projects often involve navigating complicated property ownership issues. You might find that your project requires the use of a portion of someone’s homestead or some other privately held space. Rather than alter your plans and risk delaying the project, find a company that can assist you with Right of Way services. Right of way negotiations are common when it comes to infrastructure needs such as utility work and transportation projects.
When a landowner has property that can be used for commercial projects, right of way acquisition allows builders to use a portion of that land with permission from the landowner. In some cases, the landowner will give up the right to build certain structures or use the land in a way that might inhibit future construction. Of course, the landowner also benefits from this arrangement, as they’ll receive some form of monetary compensation when a deal is reached between all sides.
The right of way process involves multiple steps, including land inspection and appraisal. The land’s value is determined by comparing it to the value of similar properties. The landowner can then negotiate the details of the acquisition before an agreement is reached.
Once land is acquired, it’s likely that the area will still require prep work before actual construction begins. Diamond T can offer support when it comes to tasks such as:
History Rights of Way
As far back as the early 1860s, rights of way have been used to allow for the expansion of railroads. The U.S. government granted a right of way so railroads could eventually sprawl across the continental, transporting goods and people. Without that grant, today’s lines of intercontinental transportation might look very different.
Nowadays, rights of way services can help move forward construction projects that involve tasks such as mining, drilling, redirecting water flow, or installing communication lines. If the path of your next project runs through private land, consult the experts at Diamond T services for more information on the possibility of land acquisition.
