Easements are nonpossessory rights to use someone else’s property. They can be conveyed by deed or contract and potentially have a major impact. When they are valid and enforceable, easements can have a major impact on the use of property, its development and, ultimately, the value of a transaction involving property subject to an easement.

Easements are nonpossessory rights to use someone else’s property. They can be conveyed by deed or contract and potentially have a major impact. When they are valid and enforceable, easements can have a major impact on the use of property, its development and, ultimately, the value of a transaction involving property subject to an easement. Timely identifying easements in diligence, valuing them, and perhaps obtaining their termination or release are essential to securing value in a transaction. If your client depends on an easement, ensuring that they are properly drafted and filed for enforcement over a long period of time can be challenging. This program will provide you with a real world guide to easements in real estate transactions, including their types, how they’re created and released, or enforced in transactions.
- Types of easements – prescriptive, appurtenant, in gross, mortgage-related, estoppel, necessity and quasi-easements
- How they are used in real estate transactions – which are best for your client?
- Due diligence in transactions – identifying and valuing easements
- Creation of easements – drafting essential terms and filing for maximum enforcement
- Enforcement – methods and measure of damages
- Termination and release – effective drafting to eliminate easements
