What is an easement?

An easement is a type of property right wherein the holder of the easement has the right to occupy, cross, or use another person's land for a specific purpose. For example, a property owner might grant an easement to a neighbor giving them the right to build and use a road across a specific portion of the owner’s land. Easements are considered encumbrances on property titles, and they must be disclosed when transferring property.
