Understanding Easements: What You Need to Know

If you're a property owner, you may have heard the term "easement" before. But what exactly is an easement, and how does it impact your property rights? This post will provide an overview of easements and answer some common questions.
What is an Easement?
An easement is a legal agreement that allows someone to use a portion of your property for a specific purpose. The most common types of easements include:
1. Right-of-way easements allow someone to travel through your property, such as a utility company that needs access to their equipment.
2. Utility easements allow utility companies to install and maintain utility lines on your property, such as gas or electric lines.

3. Conservation easements: These limit the use of your property for conservation purposes, such as protecting wildlife habitat or preserving farmland.

4. Shared driveway easements allow multiple property owners to share a driveway that crosses over one owner's property.
