Since 1990, SelectROW has worked with landowners to acquire land for communication and fiber-optic lines. Our telecommunications easement acquisition and right-of-way services enable our clients to place communications infrastructure such as fiber-optic networks on private, public and tribal lands.

SelectROW specializes in securing license agreements and fiber access agreements for placement of fiber facilities on behalf of residential, industrial, commercial and multifamily facilities across the United States.

Telecom Site Acquisition and Easements: The Process

SelectROW has broad familiarity and experience in easement acquisition and negotiation services for community infrastructure projects. We provide:

  • Pre-acquisition services: SelectROW prepares limited title certificates and works alongside client-selected survey groups during the pre-acquisition phase. In facilitating positive client/landowner relationships, we provide due diligence services, feasibility and routing studies, abstract and title searches and permitting for right of entry
  • Acquisition services: During the acquisition process, landowner communications are easily accessible to the client and are documented daily. SelectROW provides each landowner with initial easement documentation, making all reasonable efforts to meet and communicate with individual landowners, the landowners’ attorneys or designated agents to finalize the acquisition. Upon approval, SelectROW meets with landowners, attorneys and agents to complete the telecom site acquisition. 
  • Construction services: SelectROW acts as the liaison between the client and landowner to problem-solve, assess damages and assist construction contractors in obtaining their schedule goals. Our construction support services include damage claim settlement, condemnation support, project management and reporting. 
  • Project management services: From collaboration to completion, SelectROW takes an active role in coordinating internal participants and external stakeholders, functioning as a facilitator for project progression via a hands-on approach. Our project administration team will supervise overall milestone tracking and end-goal deliveries and establish an intimate involvement in the individual project components’ daily operations using multilayer quality control processes.

Telecommunications and Fiber-Optic Easement Acquisitions

Telecommunications and Fiber-Optic Easement Acquisitions

SelectROW works with telecommunications companies to negotiate access to buildings to place infrastructure. Continued rapid growth in demand for communications capacity, coupled with the advent of fiber-optic communications technology, has led private communications companies to build new fiber-optic networks and extend existing ones.

Government agencies seek to establish communications networks for governmental functions such as Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). In this context, there is increased incentive for sharing highway right-of-ways in exchange for private telecommunications capacity and expertise to further private corporate and public sector objectives.
