Alright, thanks guys.  I'm looking to purchase some property and didn't want to auto reject a large parcel due to some power lines.

The agreements can differ and sometimes CMP owns a section here and there.

Are easements different based on the town, county, or are the rules statewide?

I would assume that would case by case depending on the utilities easement and how it is worded (how much control/restriction they have) But if I own it, good luck keeping me off it.
I agree. I never read the fine print but I own it and pay taxes on it so I'm using it.

Was wondering if anybody knows what the laws are regarding what can be done with/on a powerline if you own it?
