Overview

Customer Complains about Eminent Domain Issue.

Resolution

Sometimes, SCE uses a type of property access called an “easement.” If SCE obtains an easement, either through negotiated agreement or by eminent domain, the landowner still owns the property but SCE secures the right to construct, operate, and maintain the proposed facilities upon the property. After a project is approved by the CPUC, SCE initiates the negotiation process for obtaining the necessary easements. First, SCE determines the extent of required right-of-way to be acquired on the property. The utility then conducts a survey, obtains a preliminary title report and prepares the documents for the grant of the easement. After the
documents have been prepared, SCE uses a state certified appraiser to determine the fair market value of the easement.
