Easements Law

Easements Legal Issues:

Easements Law:

An easement is the right to use some part of another person's property for a stated purpose. For instance, if one person owns land that borders a National Forest and has a neighbor that lives next door who must drive to the public entry point of the forest, the landowner might grant an easement allowing the neighbor to cross the land to access the forest. That portion of land then becomes part of the deed for both properties. Other uses of easements include:

  • An easement that gives a utility company the right to erect power lines or bury gas pipelines across a piece of land
  • An easement that allows the building and maintenance of a water storage facility

Easements Law Legal Issues:

Although legally possible, easements often result in disagreements. An easement requires a large amount of real estate litigation for determining the boundaries. Also, a landowner that grants an easement is typically prohibited from building fences or other structures that would hinder access of any kind. Other activities may also be prohibited and property resale values may be affected.

What a Real Property Lawyer can do for you:

Laws dictating easements are complex and vary from state to state. An experienced real property lawyer can review the purchase contract and easement and advise you of your options, giving you more information. A real property lawyer can also represent you in court. In case you own an easement and want to terminate an easement agreement, a real estate lawyer can record all property transactions and protect your rights.
