Job Description for Right Of Way Agent
Right-of-way agents are primarily responsible for securing property rights for lands being sought for acquirement or development. They are hired by third parties, such as private businesses, government agencies, construction crews, or any individuals or groups working on land projects.Read More...
Those in this position generally have a wide range of duties, and one of their first tasks involves finding land owners who may be affected by a future project before that project can commence. Then, they must establish a relationship with the land owners and create a point of contact between them and the construction company, which is particularly important if either party has concerns they wish to voice. From here, the key task of a right-of-way agent is to negotiate a price with the land owners.
There are also other duties involved, including securing digging locations for construction workers; writing, drafting, and reviewing legal reports which convey the acquisition of rights; and researching market demands, prices, costs, real estate transactions, interest rates, and any other information that employers may find beneficial.
Right-of-way agents typically work during weekdays, but may occasionally be needed on nights and/or weekends. Work can be both physical and non-physical, in an office and on the field. These agents interact regularly with other members of their company and may also have to deal with distressed or dissatisfied customers.
Many employers require at least an Associate's degree in a field related to business or planning, as well as two years of work experience and completion of an International Right of Way course. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
