Easements & Encroachments
BTI acts as a forensic consultant testifying in court on behalf of both condemning agencies and property owners when issues of easements through eminent domain or other issues cannot be agreed upon.
Encroachments typically occur through Title Companies when they fail to note them, or when a home owner has built a structure partially on a neighbor’s property. Easement appraisals normally occur when one party wants to have a degree of access to another’s property, either permanently or temporarily. This could be a utility that wants an underground easement, or someone wants an easement to drive on a property to access their own.
