Undefined Easements (2015)

Undefined Easements (2015)


1.0 MCLE Credit in Professional Practice

This presentation will explain “Undefined Easements” and explore thorny issues such as:

* How do you locate or relocate an express grant or reservation of an easement that does not contain "detailed dimensional specifications?"

* What happens when an easement lacks reference to metes and bounds in the grant, exact distances and measurements, or specific measured references to high water lines, monuments, neighboring properties and other landmarks?
