Patrick Reznik is partnering with the San Antonio Board of Realtors (SABOR) and will speak at their upcoming Farm and Land Marketing session. The topic of his speech is entitled, “Transmission Lines and Pipelines: routing, condemnation and easements”. This event will take place on March 18, beginning at 9:00 am.
Description of Topic:
The construction of transmission lines and pipelines, a reaction to the rising demand for electric power and energy in the state, is changing the landscape of Texas, the value of its rural properties, and presenting unprecedented challenges for owners of rural land. This material will help to inform brokers about the routing and eminent domain processes “public use” companies have to follow before construction . The information learned from this class will help to empower brokers on providing accurate and pertinent information to their clients as many landowners are unfamiliar with the complex routing process governed by the Public Utility Commission (PUC), leaving them feeling powerless against big utilities with big legal teams. Finally, this talk will emphasize the value in negotiating new easements that will likely last for many future generations. And its critical that buyers of land understand the limitations on their property rights related to existing “old” blanket easements
