Definition - What does Easements mean?

Easements refer to a type of property right where a person is legally allowed to use another person’s property in order to travel from point A to point B. In other words, an easement gives a person the right to travel across another person’s land, but does not give them the right to do anything else with the other persons land.

Justipedia explains Easements

There are different types of easements in American law. For example, some easements are made by agreement between two parties while other easements are automatically created in some instances. The following is an example of when an easement would be required of a person. Person A owns land that is landlocked except for its south entrance. Person A then sells the top half of the land to Person B. In this situation, the only way that Person B could get on and off the land is to travel through Person A’s land.
