Easements Aren't Easy (Part Three)

Posted by Edward C. Ip | Sep 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

The truth about easements is that they are simply contracts which are embedded in the title of a property by recording. Because of this, the rights and responsibilities of an easement can vary greatly. If you're pursuing an easement, considering acquiring a property with an easement, or are considering a request for an easement on your property, the same steps taken with any other contract are advisable. An easement in its simplest form leaves much to question - seek an attorney who has experience in real estate law, and assess the language of the easement agreement to determine whether or not it is appropriate for your situation. Most easements which provide for a commercial interest come with use compensation - a steady check each month for the use of a portion of your property. On the other hand, almost all easements require some type of upkeep on someone's part. In fact, the language of the easement is vitally important. Check in soon for details.
