Land Research and Title Work Are Crucial for Utility Projects
- Sep 13, 2021 8:18 pm GMT
here are certain requirements that must be met when it comes to research and title work for utility projects. When tackled successfully, research can help promote efficiency, maintain schedule constraints and acquire appropriate land rights to support project implementation. During these steps, it is important to keep in mind that not all projects are created equal. Some require additional or specific attention to detail.
Linear and greenfield projects demand differing research and title search practices compared to other types of work. For example, linear projects require development of a line list for a proposed route at the beginning of the scoping process. The associated title work may simply capture current ownership to determine if the proper party is engaged in order to acquire the necessary easement rights. In addition, the title work will capture land use and ownership type. A greenfield substation purchase would require a full title search back to patent to obtain all items that encumber the subject parcel. Purchasing a site that has substantial facilities already in place may render it infeasible for project needs.
