What is an Easement?
The legal term “easement” refers to the legal right to use another person’s real property, for a specific purpose and a specific amount of time. An easement gives a person the legal right to go through another person’s land, as long as the usage is consistent with the specified easement restrictions. Although an easement grants a possessory interest in the land for a specific purpose, the landowner retains the title to the property.
Easements may be given to anyone, such as neighbors, government agencies, and private parties. An example of an easement would be if a property owner allows the use of their private road or path for their neighbor’s navigation. Common easements include public utilities, power lines, and cable TV (though these are often underground). As easements are associated with real property, they are governed by real property law.
