Right of way agreements and eminent domain could allow for powerline or pipeline companies to enter, or even seize, privately owned land. When a company is seeking such agreements, it’s important for landowners to know their rights.
The National Agricultural Law Center will host a free webinar Wednesday, March 20, at 11 a.m. EST (10 a.m. CST) answering questions on property rights, rights-of-way, and eminent domain. Sean High, staff attorney for the Penn State Center for Agricultural and Shale Law, will help landowners understand the laws affecting these issues.
In addition to general property rights common to all landowners, this webinar will also cover right-of-way agreements and potential considerations for negotiation. The topic of eminent domain will be discussed regarding a powerline or pipeline company’s right under federal and state law to seize private land.
“We commonly receive questions from stakeholders around the nation about pipeline and powerline easements, eminent domain, and right of way agreements,” said Harrison Pittman, director of the National Agricultural Law Center. “It’s an issue that often impacts farmers and other agriculturalists, and this webinar will address their concerns.”
