Easements & Easement Agreements
An easement is the right to use someone else’s real property. They come in endless varieties: easements for utilities, access (ingress and egress), parking, view, signs, driveways, maintenance. Every easement burdens some particular property and most often benefits another property such as when the owner of one parcel of land has an easement to cross adjacent land to reach a road. Sometimes, an easement does not benefit any particular property, but instead benefits a person or entity, as with utility easements. For example, when the power company has a power line easement across your property, the easement probably benefits the power company itself, and not any particular property.
The Law Office of Erin R. Parks assists clients to create easement agreements so that the location and geographical parameters of an easement are specifically defined; the purpose of the easement is clearly stated; reservations of right are preserved; exclusivity or non-exclusivity is identified; responsibility for maintenance, repair and replacement of improvements located in the easement is laid out; sharing of costs and liability, if any, are declared; and what constitutes a default under the easement are well known in advance to avoid disputes and the remedies available .
