We Can Put A Swimming Pool Here!
Wait! If you see your client loving the home you are showing them and hear "we can build the swimming pool right here!" It is time to step in and explain about Easements.
If your clients have the intention on constructing a pool be sure to let them know that you will have to check for any easements crossing the property which may negate their desire to build anything in that section of the yard.
I once showed a lovely new construction to a couple who wanted to construct a pool in the very small back yard. This property had a large easement running through the back end of the property. Any sized pool would have been too large and encompass the easement. Had they told me they had intentions of building a pool I would have never showed them that property.
Your local municipality can show you if they have any utility easements and if there is a telephone box in the back corner that is a sure sign that there is an easement somewhere on that property. You should also check for gas line easements too.
