I live on a small property that has a utility pole in one corner of the backyard. In the past, the various utility companies have accessed this pole from the neighbors yard which provides more room for a tall ladder or even ample room for a bucket truck. The occasions that they have needed to access this pole from my yard they have always knocked on the door to let us know that they would be back there. Today however, I awoke to see a man standing right outside my bedroom window (which is about 15 feet away from the utility pole). I was one number away from dialing "911" when I realized it was a guy from the cable company. After confronting the man about having some common courtesy and announcing his intentions before trampling through someone's backyard, and only getting a "shove off, I have easement rights" response I started researching what kind of rights residents have in respect to this issue, but have turned up nearly nothing. Does anybody have any insight?
