Buying home near utility pole or service pole
I am a first time home buyer. We liked a house which is 6 years old and suits our likes. The only problem I noticed is there are service/utility lines along backyard's boundary.
I read the topics on power lines and the devaluation it causes, but these are wooden poles with couple of electric wires running across. The pole on left side is approx 2 houses away, but the one on left side is like 15 feet away.
The wooden poles look like this https://auth.gardenweb.com/activation/activate?pser=Ebokl9pgSncQfmlohmlkno
After doing some web search I found they are not same as power lines, but called service lines or utility lines.
My concerns are about safety (mainly during thunderstorms & lightening) and who pays the costs if county wants to do some maintenance which might affect our fencing.
