Nothing in this division shall be construed so as to permit the construction or placing of any construction within a public or private easement which prohibits such construction or placement.
What is a Utility Easement?
Even though you own the property on which your home rests, utility companies in the area might have the right to use parts of it. When you purchased your home a utility easement might have been on the property. This is the case for many properties that are connected to a city power grid, sewer and/or water system. The same holds true for drainage, and all maintenance easements (e.g. golf course, water-body, etc.)
Structures prohibited from being placed within an easement are as follows:
- All Buildings
- Large Trees
