Any suggestions on how to develop some "missed easement" work. My notion is to solicit title companies.

Title companies would be good.....and you might seek out the title insurers.....the peopel who actually underwrite the title insurance. And as one filnal thought, get hold of your states list of easement attorneys.....while they may specialize in eminent domain, they probably get into private fights as well.....it should be available from your dept of transportation or corporation commission.

Ah Ha, I see what you are talking about now. Like Judy said, maybe you can scan the county records (hopefully on computer) and look for corporate owners. Or read the legal ads every month to see if the title companies post notices of claim.

Other work that you might do for title companies....

I know of instances where they had to purchase entire properties due to some sort of title defect, or someone's mistake, etc. I run across deed transfers sometime with something like "Commonwealth Insurers...etc." as the "buyer." (Just a made up name - you can tell when you see them, though.) This would be similar to REO work.

i know how to get some easement work. talk to the lawyers! just recently a pipeline company put in a co2 gas pipeline across my county. the pipeline company hired a large oil and gas law firm, who then hired the appraiser. how do i know this? i work for the only title company in town and i didnt know anything until the easements started rolling in. then i talked with the appraiser at the courthouse. anyway, market yourself to law firms in the area. glad to be here! glad to be an appraier soon1 two more months maybe!

Hi Fredrick,
The few calls I have had for this type of work have always come by referall from a Realtor. In each case, a borrower found a defect and the title company required that they have an appraisal done to prove the damages. The first person the homeowner calls is the Realtor that sold them the house.
This is just my limited experience...
