What rights do I have to use an easement that runs across my property?
An easement is a legal right to use someone else’s property for a specific purpose. If you own a property that has an easement running across it, you have the right to use the easement for the purpose for which it was established.
However, you must also respect the rights of the owner of the easement and use the easement in a reasonable manner. This means that you cannot interfere with the owner’s use of the easement or prevent the owner from accessing the easement.
You also have a responsibility to maintain the easement in a safe and passable condition. This may involve clearing debris or making repairs to the easement if necessary.
If you believe that the owner of the easement is not respecting your rights as the owner of the property or is using the easement in an unreasonable manner, you may be able to seek legal remedies. You may want to consider consulting with an attorney to understand your rights and options.
