FAST FACTS #2: Real Estate Terminology – Easements

An Easement is a right granted (typically in the deed)  for use of a portion of property by someone other than the owner.

Generally speaking there are two types:  An Easement allowing one party to cross over a piece of property in order to gain access to another piece of property that is landlocked.  Sometimes this will manifest itself as a “Shared Driveway” which is actually owned by one party or the other but both have access.

The second type is a public easement or right-of-way which comes to be when a municipality/public utility has the right to cross a piece of property to provide continuous service.

There are other types of easements but these are the most common occurrences.
