What is an Easement
An easement is a section of land registered on your property title, which gives someone the right to use the land for a specific purpose even though they are not the land owner. There are also certain statutory easements which are not registered on your title, such as drainage easements.
The important thing about easements is to be aware of them, and know the terms of any which affect your property.
