When a pipeline company engages a right of way acquisition company to negotiate the easements, in what manner is the right of way company compensated? Contracted price for service, flat hourly rate? Do they get additional compensation if they acquire the rights of way cheaper than a predetermined budget? The individual that represent the right of way acquisition company indicated that he is paid hourly so he doesn't care how much they pay us for the right of way, but I was wondering if there were some type of incentive to negotiate as low a price as possible.
Does it really matter?
If you are at Best Buy, does it matter if the salesman is commission or hourly.
You can only make the best deal that you can make. If you don't want it on your property, let them move on to your next door neighbor.
I am not trying to be flippant, just trying to make a point. Either you want to negotiate with them or you don't. Too many people have missed too many opportunities worrying about too many variables that are either irrelevant or beyond their control. Myself included.
Good luck to you.
If you have no interest in the pipeline being located on your property, you need to arm yourself with knowledge about the laws pertaining to pipelines in your state. Louisiana and Texas are QUITE different.
That's what saltpeter in a double-barrel is for, if you ask me.
I've negotiated for a Right of Way and in my case it was a win/win situation. I was pleased with the outcome. What good is a producing well, if it can't be brought to market?
