I found a nice piece of land that I wish to purchase. I've never purchased a house or land before and I'm hoping for some advice.
The property has quite a bit of acreage, but it appears that on the southern edge of the property, there are high voltage power lines cutting through the property occupying and cutting off apx. 10% of the property with a 100ft wide swath of powerlines approximately 800+ feet long. Pretty sure these are very high voltage as well and there's 4 or 5 towers on the property.
I'm guessing the electric company has some sort of right-of-way (hopefully non-permanent). Aside from asking the realtor, is there a way I can find out what kind of agreement exists? Don't power companies normally pay money for this or deduct from your power bill? The powerlines are depicted on the southern (bottom) most portion of the property image.
