PRINCIPLE RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Negotiate Acquisition of Property Rights - Establishing a positive relationship with property owners is crucial to advancing a project smoothly.  Right of way agents take time to explain what exactly the project entails, then answer any questions an affected property owner may have.  Whether the property rights are being bought or leased, right of way agents research the property's value before making the owner an offer.
 
  • Secure Permits and Licenses - Making sure that a project is compliant with local and state laws is also the responsibility of a right of way agent.  They coordinate consultations with local officials, inspectors, and assessors to determine which permits and licenses they will need, then organise and deliver all the required documents for obtaining such permits.

  • Legal knowledge - From land rights to permits, right of way agents must be able to understand different types of legal documentation needed to begin a construction or maintenance project in their region.
 
  • Map reading - Right of way agents are adept at interpreting maps, blueprints, and property records to ensure that they are securing the appropriate rights and permits for a project.
 
  • Research - Long stints in courthouses or online databases may be necessary for determining property ownership and securing records, so right of way agents should be adept researchers.
  • Document management - Right of way agents deal with many documents and processes at all stages of a project, and therefore must be highly organized and efficient coordinators.
  • Analytical ability - complex problems may arise during projects, such as conflicting interests between property owners and utility companies, so it's up to right of way agents to analyse alternative approaches and offer solutions that are agreeable to all involved
  • Communication skills - right of way agents must not only be able to negotiate with property owners for the acquisition of land rights, but must be able to tactfully settle claims if there is property damage during projects
