Overview

CONCISE, IN-DEPTH COVERAGE OF THE COMPLEX ISSUES OF EASEMENTS AND THEIR REVERSION

The definition, use, defense, and retirement of easements are areas of active work for land surveyors, lawyers, and the holders and buyers of easements, such as utility companies and highway departments. Easements Relating to Land Surveying and Title Examination is the most up-to-date reference that succinctly and incisively covers easements and reversions, written for land surveyors and title examiners.

This comprehensive guide covers the various forms of easements, their creation, reversion, and termination. Its numerous case studies offer examples of situations in which easements resulted in litigation and reveal how these cases were decided by the courts. The book also includes coverage of undescribed easements and guidance on how to properly write new easement descriptions.

This useful, practical handbook:

  • Defines easements and easement terminology
  • Covers both right-of-way and right-of-way line easements
  • Explains the creation of easements by express grant, reservation or exception, agreement or covenant, implication, estoppel, custom, and more
  • Explores all types of easement termination, including expiration, release, merger of title, abandonment, prescription or adverse possession, and many others
  • Provides thorough descriptions of problem easements, from undescribed and blanket easements to hidden and rolling easements
  • Offers extensive coverage of reversion of easements, including highway-related reversions and rules for locating and defining reversions
  • Presents detailed information for land surveyors and title examiners on how to handle these easement issues

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Easements and related incorporeal rights to land have become more critical than ever as land development brings access to the forefront of many property disputes. This book represents a comprehensive study of the complexities that may arise when dealing with roads (both public and private), railways and utility easements. The author has researched many topics not previously addressed in other texts of this genre. Basic principles are clearly laid out in the 14-chapters of the book, but this text goes beyond the basics to provide specific information on overlooked and emerging issues. Wilson's book includes discussion of easements created by a vote of a governing body, along with rolling easements and blanket easements. In addition, the tricky issues generated in subdivisions by a "common scheme" are considered. I was particularly pleased to read the section on the creation of railroad rights of way and the specific examples of language that will determine the rights conveyed. (Kristopher M. Kline, Reviewer & Author, October 2013)
