- Easements are limited rights that allow a person to use another person’s property or restrict the owner’s use in some way.
- The two most common types of property easements are express easements and prescriptive easements.
- Express easements are conveyed through a written deed and clearly define the scope of the easement.
- On the other hand, prescriptive easements are granted through court actions and are less common as they require specific conditions to be met over time.
- Prescriptive easements are established through open, notorious, continuous, and adverse use of the property for five years.
- If you are facing an easement dispute, it’s essential to seek the advice of an experienced easement dispute attorney.
