What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? VA
I recently purchased a house that has a telephone pole in the backyard. On the title search there was no mention of an easement for the pole. When speaking with a representative from the local phone company today, the pole was placed before the house was built by AT&T, then Verizon added lines to it, and then the local company added lines to it. I don't have service from any of the three companies. Anyway, the representative said it could be $5k to $10k to move it. What are my options regarding paying for it since it's not on the deed as an easement?
