FHA Loan Expert in Utility Easements
An FHA loan expert with utility easement expertise was needed for a constructive condemnation case. The plaintiff filed in U.S. District Court to obtain an easement that would allow it to install and maintain a natural gas pipeline. The defendants were local property owners. They hired a real estate appraiser, who opined that the Federal Housing Administration would not secure building loans within 100 yards of a storage facility, creating large no build zones on the defendants’ property and rendering it unusable for development.
