Drafting and Interpreting Easements
Recorded easements encumber many parcels of real property, and can constitute a minor or significant property right. Ambiguities in the recorded document often lead to uncertainty and disputes, including disputes that might sink an acquisition.

Case law is legion, and often conflicting.
