A Masterpiece On The Scope Of Easements And Remedies If Easement Holders Exceed Their Rights
Facts: Sho-Me, a rural electric cooperative, acquired over many years thousands of easements across properties in southern Missouri. The language in these easements’ varies even though they all grant to Sho-Me the right to construct and operate electric transmission lines. In addition, to the right to construct and operate electric transmission lines, some grant the right to construct appurtenances or do things “necessary and useful to the enjoyment of the easement.” Other easements are for electric transmission lines only or for electric transmission lines with unspecified appurtenances. Others are for electric transmission lines and appurtenances, which include specific references to communications equipment. Some are the result of court orders condemning easements limited to electric transmission lines and generic appurtenances or specifying related communications equipment. (View April News Blog.)
