Welcome to the Easements section of FindLaw's Real Estate Center. An easement is a legal term describing a situation in which someone allows another party to use a portion of land that they legally possess. One common example of an easement is when someone drives over their neighbor's property to access their house on a shared driveway. Many utility companies have easements through property developments which allow them to enter and perform various services. This section provides information on legal issues that affect the easement holder (the person using the property) and the owner of the property being used.
