An easement is a limited right to use another person’s land for a specific purpose. For example, an easement may be granted by a homeowner to a neighbor to cross the homeowner’s land for access to a road or the placement of utility poles, water lines, and sewer lines.  The easement allows the neighbor to use the land for that specific purpose only and does not give them the right of possession or the authority to build or plant on the land without the homeowner’s permission. Easements are documented in a title report and may affect a buyer’s use of the property.
