Easy Easements: Is there Such a Thing?

At Schorr Law our Los Angeles based easement attorneys have extensive experience litigating, drafting and negotiating all types of easements. We are constantly asked to give advice regarding whether an easement is obtainable and how easy it will be to obtain.  This is a very tough questions and the answer changes depending on the facts of your particular case.

Of course, each case is different and the relative ease in getting an easement in one case does not mean that there will be a very long and hard fought battle over an easement in another case. We have had easements resolved at first contact and others that do not get resolved before years of hotly contested litigation.  Because we know that easements can be difficult to obtain we try to resolve all of our cases out of court, even if a lawsuit has already begun.

The types of easement claims we see most frequently are as follows:

  • Prescriptive Easements
  • Equitable Easements
  • Easements by Necessity
  • Express Easements
  • Implied Easements

Often times easement disputes are really better understood as boundary disputes.   We do find, that that the firmest or easiest types of easements are express easements. After that the strength of any easement claim is really dependent upon historic use, the law and prior ownership.
