When the Landman Comes Calling Don’t Sign Anything Until You Are Absolutely Sure
“If it is a federally-regulated pipeline, the land agent is likely not going to tell you that after the pipeline is in the ground you are legally and financially liable every time you drive farm equipment across the easement without first getting written permission from the company. Nor is he going to tell you about the problems and costs you may face when the day for abandoning the pipeline finally rolls around.” – CAEPLA (Canadian Association of Energy & Pipeline Landowner Associations)
