There are many definitions out there regarding what an easement dispute is, or what the easement itself is. In simple terms, an easement is a right to use another person’s land for a specific purpose. It gives its owner limited right to use the land of the other person, or prevent the other property owner’s use of their property.
The land that is entitled to the benefit of the easement is called the dominant tenement. In other words, this is the land that belongs to someone else that is being used for a given purpose.
The land that is burdened by the easement is called the servient tenement. This is the land that belongs to the owner and is being used by another who is not the owner.
An easement may be created by, among other things, the following ways: express grant, express reservation, an implied grant, an implied reservation, necessity, prescription, a recorded covenant, dedication, condemnation, estoppel, or a court decision.
