An easement is a legal right to use another’s land for a specific, limited purpose. When someone is granted an easement, he is granted the legal right to use the property, but the legal title to the land itself remains with the owner of the property. Easements are legal agreements that must be created and attached to the property title.

The creation of an easement has several considerations, which involve a full title search and investigation into the history of the use of the property prior to being able to come to any definitive conclusions.
