The particulars of a legal issue involving easements require the experience and knowledge of an easement expert witness with sufficient background in real estate laws. An easement grants one person the right to use property that is owned by someone else, whether it is for travel, resources, construction, or other purpose.
An easement may be brought about in several different scenarios, as well as possible dispute arising from the arrangement. There are also different types of easements, depending on the property and owners involved. For example, an affirmative easement grants one landowner access to the land of another, i.e. for travel or farming, while a negative assessment would block a landowner from utilizing their land for a seemingly legal purpose when it would negatively affect someone else’s property, i.e. building a house that would obstruct surrounding scenery for other property owners. An easement-related dispute may be brought to court when property owners believe that their land has been subject to trespassing or an easement has been violated.
Since the ownership rights to a property are by nature a legal arrangement, a court is usually necessary to legally recognize and establish an easement. An easement expert witness will therefore have experience in related subjects, such as land surveying, title insurance, real estate, eminent domain, land titles, property transactions, land use, and investments.
