My question involves an easement in the state of: CA
We live on a private road in which ATT has communications lines in a conduit. They are unable to provide high-speed Internet and we asked them to vacate the conduit so we could let Cox Cable use it. ATT could produce no record of having been granted an easement. The deleopment is three years old. A new conduit would cost 5000 per house.
During the months in which this was being discussed with ATT, they filed an easement based on a 1984 law allowing assignments of easements by San Diego Gas & Electric.
Can ATT be forced to run a new conduit since they didn't not have an easement at the time of construction? I don't know who actually laid the original conduit - builder or ATT.
