What Is An Easement

Easement is when a third party, not the property owner itself, has a right to use the property for a specific purpose. For instance, say a utility company may have an easement to be able to repair sewer lines or power lines that are on your property. A person may have an easement to use your property to access another property. There’s different types of easements and different rights that go with the different types of easements, so it’s important to consult an experienced real estate attorney if you have questions about an easement on your property.
