Real estate law is one of those areas where many people tend to see more complications than solutions. There is no doubt that this area of the law is oftentimes heavy on documentation, records and the exact wording of contracts. Easements, for example, fall under an area of real estate law where exact wording is important and complications can pop up with regularity.
It is important to avoid common misconceptions about easements. Some may think that an easement holder has an ownership stake in the property where the easement exists. That is not exactly true. In fact, the rights of an easement are a “non-possessory” right; it is a right to use a certain area of property, not a right to ownership.
While that is probably the most important aspect of easements for our readers to know, there is no doubt that other factors involving easements can come up in real estate transactions and disputes as well. How the easement is used, where it is located, whether it still exists – these are all common issues in real estate problems that involve easements.
