What Are My Rights?

Many property owners do not realize they have a right to compensation for transmission line easements. If even a portion of their property needs to be used by Grain Belt Express, owners are entitled under the Constitution to receive just compensation.

Just compensation includes not only the value of the property lost to electric utilities, but also damage done to the remaining property. Property owners should consult an attorney before signing any documents effecting their property. Attorneys at Denlow & Henry provide an initial consultation at no charge to a property owner.
