Land & Right of Way

We understand that the property and property rights required for your project is crucial to the success of your projects. Commonwealth’s Land and Right of Way professionals are devoted to providing you with the results that you desire for your projects’ land requirements. Our experts can provide you with recommendations on possible sites, or routes for your linear project, develop cost estimates, and identify the challenges and benefits of each route or site. We enjoy the challenge of determining and acquiring the optimal route or site.

Commonwealth places a high emphasis on the professional, technical, ethical, and moral standards required for successful land acquisition. We have a wide array of experience regarding land and right of way services. We have helped clients enhance green space with beautification of areas, created safer paths for pedestrians, airport runway expansion and safety areas, road widening, utility corridors and acquisition of property in fee for project facilities. Our land agent professionals are successful by developing and maintaining trusting and professional relationships with property owners. We work in compliance with all applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations. We are here to help you clear the path to a successful project.

We offer land and right of way services from before a project begins to the successful completion of a project. We can perform the routing, siting, cost estimating, data gathering, database creation and maintenance with report production, and market valuation analysis. Commonwealth offers title services, property ownership research, mapping, securing appraisals and appraisal reviews, attending public meetings for positive public relations, and obtaining rights-of-entry. Our Land and Right of Way specialists will negotiate acquisitions, perform complex negotiations, perform fee, easement, and lease acquisitions, property inspection, and offer relocation services. For services required later in a project, we provide property management, condemnation preparation and testimony, construction damage settlements, sale of excess property, closings, and coordination of demolition oversight.
