In today’s day and age, it is almost unheard of to own a parcel of real estate that is not encumbered by an easement. An easement is an interest in real property that grants the holder of the easement the right to use another’s property for a limited purpose. For example, most parcels of real estate are encumbered with easements in favor of utility companies.
