What is an Easement?

The easements are rights attached to the land, to use other lands in a particular way, that’s somebody else’s land it does not involve. The taking of natural resources or produce from the land, for example, timber or other vegetation or soil.

It may, however, prevent the owner of the other land from using that their land in a particular way. So an example of the easement is, where one owner allows another owner to have access to their land, that land advantaged by the easements called the benefited blot or the dominant tenement the land over. Which the easement is granted is called the burdened lot or the Serbian tenement. The benefit of an easement runs with the land runs with a benefit a lot that is it passes from one owner of the benefited land to the next simply the burden of an easement runs with the burdened lot. So the owner, of the burdened lot is continually burdened with that easement. The burden of the easement remains unless it’s surrendered or extinguished. You can only be surrendered by the person, who has a benefit of it and otherwise, extinguished in other ways the exception to this is in the case of an easement in gross where there is burdened a lot only to serve for the purposes of local government or local means instrumentalities. An example of an easement in gross is – where an owner allows the local authority to put drainage pipes under their land, so going ahead that’s been helpful for understanding some of the fundamentals of easements.
