Verizon has been using my property for years without my consent or without a pre-existing easement. They have refused to remove their equipment or compensate me for the use.
In my case, they erected poles and ran an underground conduit the length of the property. I suspect this experience reflects an earlier practice in older cities and neighborhoods of never acquiring an easement or even obtaining consent. It would be helpful for all to know how pervasive this abuse is.
Are there others with similar experiences? Check and see if Verizon is using your property without an easement, or if it has violated any easement or consent.
