Gives one party the right to go onto another party’s property. Utilities often get easements that allow them to run pipes or phone lines beneath private property.

Easements are important because they provide a connection between two or more properties. This allows individuals to have access to each other’s properties. 

For instance, if there’s an easement on your private pond, a friend can access it whenever they wish to. Same applies to when a person has the right to drive through their neighbor’s land. 

In some jurisdictions, an easement is also known as property right. Before a right can be an easement, a piece of land must be dominant or servient.
