Easement definition

/ˈiːzm(ə)nt/

What does Easement mean?

An easement is an incorporeal right enjoyed by the owner of the dominant tenement over the servient tenement. It binds successors in title. Easements are usually positive, giving a right to do something (e.g. a right of way over the servient land to the dominant land), but can be negative, preventing something being done on the servient land, thereby giving the dominant owner the right to receive something from the servient land (eg a right to light).

Easement explained

Easements can be legal or equitable and created by express or implied grant or by statute or arise by prescription or long user.
