What is an Easement?

The legal definition of an easement is the legal right to use another’s land for a specific limited purpose. Easements are classified as "appurtenant" or "in gross." Appurtenant easements are said to "run with the land," which means they are part of the land's formal ownership. An easement in gross is a personal easement that does not transfer with the property.
