Residential Self Move
SUBPART D § 24.301(b) and (c)
Residential Self Move Examples
Example One: Robert and Sally Link will be moving soon due the acquisition of their home in a federally-assisted highway project. The DOT has obtained two estimates of the move and presented those to the Links. The low estimate is $8,500 and the high estimate is $9,000. The Links have indicated that they would be agreeable to accepting the low bid and performing the move themselves. Can the DOT pay a lump-sum amount for a self-move to a residential displacee?
The DOT may not make such a payment unless supported by adequate proof of expenditures for the work necessary. In other words, the self-move for residential occupants is dissimilar to that permitted for businesses.
Example Two: A dwelling is acquired that has an above ground swimming pool which is personal property. The occupant could elect:
A fixed payment from the moving cost schedule for the residence, plus an actual cost move for the pool; or
An actual cost move for all of the personal property.
