We are having a pipeline constructed nextdoor to our property and have been approached by the company reps to allow them access from our drive to the designated construction area. To give an idea of what we are up against is that this pipeline will run at our property line the full length of our property wich is approx 1/2 mile. Our drive which is basically same as a location road is approx 1/4 mile in length and will be there only access to this without them having to completley build another access road from another area. The pipeline will run directly off of our property line with a 50 foot  right away that runs over into neighbors property . Also this is extremely close to my house which is approx 15 to 20 feet off the property line , and the pipeline will be an 8 inch line, and in noway am I real happy about this. Should I have any concerns?. So far the company Rep has offered to rebuild our drive of any damages that occur, and says that they may have to use some of our our property along the property line during the construction, and will  give us 4 to 5 thousand dollars in money for usage of our property for 45 to 60 days. To me that is not worth our inconveniance for the several months this is goin to occur. And our drive was just re-rocked last year so is in no need of repairs as of  right now. So with this being said what would be considered a fair counter offer and what concerns should we have and questions we should ask? And is it correct to say we need all this in writing before we commit? Thanks , any help will be greatly appreciated.

I believe you will be much happier in the long run :-). If you had taken their offer you probably would have kicked yourself everyday for doing it....which would be as bad or worse as the construction. Now you can drive by and just S M I L E !
MAKE SURE YOU GET LEGAL ADVICE ON THIS ONE. THEY WILL PAY YOU A SMALL PRICE AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE A LEGAL BINDING CONTRACT. YOU CAN BE LEFT WITH DAMAGES UNPAID FOR SETTLING AFTER THEY ARE LONG GONE. $5,000.00 IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY FOR THE VARIOUS TYPES OF WEIGHT FROM THEIR VEHICLES COMING ON YOUR PROPERTY.
