Encroachments & Easements

Work With GRU » Real Estate » Encroachments & Easements

Reviewing existing or proposed encroachments and releasing easements

When property is bought or sold, periodically encroachments on easements are discovered through a survey. Since encroachments create a cloud on the title, property owners can ask GRU to release all or a portion of its interest in the encroached utility easement.

Requesting a Review of Encroachments on Easements

The GRU Real Estate Division established a review of encroachment and release of easement procedures to streamline the process. To request a review of encroachment submit the following to the GRU Real Estate Division:

Property Owner Responsibilities

  • Property owners must pay to relocate any utilities as a result of property development or encroachments discovered through this process.
  • Property owners must provide any legal descriptions needed to prepare a release of easement document.
