Section 3: Pre-Negotiation ContactsAnchor: #i1000962
When contact is made before initiation of negotiations, inform the displacee:
- Anchor: #OYULJMWP
- that relocation benefits are based on lawful occupancy; and Anchor: #OQMUMKPF
- that moving and related expenses incurred before receipt of a written offer to acquire ROW may not be eligible for reimbursement unless the displacee receives a written notice of advance relocation eligibility before his move is initiated.
Notices and Contacts with Persons Who are Not Displaced
When acquiring ROW, if only rural land will be acquired, and there are no displacements, the owners and tenants do not need to be personally contacted. Instead, the owners and tenants may be advised of their eligibility for relocation assistance services by certified mail, with return receipt requested. Inform owners and tenants about how, and where, an application requesting a review may be submitted.
