What Every REALTOR® Wants You to Know About Easements
An easement is a right to use, in some specific way, property that they do not own. It is a right, privilege, or interest that one party has in the land of another. There are many types of easements, including conservations easements, utility easements, gas line easements and power line easements. A sidewalk crossing the front of your yard is a very common easement. It is on your property, and you most likely need to keep it cleared, but you cannot remove it.
Easements can also be between private parties. For example: If a neighbor has a parcel of land that does not have access to a public right-of-way, an easement can be created to allow the landlocked property to drive through an area designated as the easement.
Easements may be in property deeds or title papers and are part and parcel of the land they affect and transfer with ownership.
