    Default Help with Utility Easements on Potential Purchase

    I have been thinking about buying one of the properties on the attached picture. The one in particular that we like is Lot 112. However, as I look at the survey (the link), there are tons of utility easements; gas, water, sewage. Do you think this is a good idea? The site is a beautiful property with trees surrounding it and very private. I just don't know anything about these types of things. If you were looking at this property, would it scare you?

    Thanks in advance for your help. I have ZERO knowledge when it comes to properties.

    I live in PA.

    It doesn't look that unusual to me - a bunch of utility easements and setbacks, leaving a sizeable buildable area in the center of the lot. Before you buy, you need to make sure that the lot is suitable for the house you would want to build, but it looks like that wouldn't be a problem. (Lot 114 might be more of a challenge.)
