Home Buying in Wheat Ridge>Question Details

Amy, Home Buyer in 80218

We need to set up an easement agreement that does not exist currently. What kind of problems can we run in to? Will our neighbors agree?

Asked by Amy, 80218 Fri Apr 19, 2013

The property was built in 1952. There are no records of easements as the water companies have changed and these were set up as private lines.
-Do you think the current neighbors will agree to creating an easement?
-Do they have any obligations to honor our access to the main sewer line as they purchased their houses with the existing set up?
-The way that the sewer lines are configured is not up to current standards. If we submit paperwork for an easement is it possible the city will require us to update our entire system?
-If we have to update the whole system how will it be possible to connect to a city line if they do not agree to the easement?
We are finding a lawyer to help us with this but I was wondering if any others have experience or insight
