I have a friend who once lived about 500-800 east of a pair of BIG double  
power lines that ran north & south. He had a 2 element tri-band quad at  about 
45 feet as an antenna. I sold a GAP Titan vertical antenna and he  mounted it 
about 50 east of his quad. He reported "hearing stations he never  heard, using 
the quad, before." So the move of fifty or so did make a difference  in his 
I strongly suggest you visit the proposed property with a mobile rig and  
make some actual noise measurements your self.  It would be nice to have a  
friend who lives a significant distance from the proposed site listening on the 
same QRG as you so you could compare notes. Do take into consideration the  
different antenna types you & your friend might use for the test.
I cannot stress enough for you to conduct your own  ''listening  research''  
before signing any papers.
BTW, that friend sold the property & moved to an area with  above ground 
power lines. There, he suffered horrible QRN, has given up HF  completely and 
just operates VHF & satellites.
