Understanding Easements in Texas

An easement is a non-possessory interest in a piece of land. The easement gives the holder the right to use the land for a specific purpose, not ownership or full use of the land. For example, an easement may be granted to an electrical company to run utility lines through the property, but this does not give ownership or full use of the land to that company. They are allowed to use it for the specific purpose of installing utility lines.

Our attorneys assist clients with many types of easements, such as:

  • Utility easements
  • Right-of-way easements
  • Historic preservation easements
  • Construction easements
  • Driveway easements
  • Beach access easements
  • Conservation easements

Easements may be public or private. A public easement grants the rights of land usage to the public, whereas a private easement grants use to a specific party or parties. Public easements may be created by a dedication of the property from the owner, by prescription, or by condemnation of the government. Public easements on city streets give the local government the right to install water, gas, and sewer lines for the benefit of the entire community.

Representation for Lawsuits over Easements

In some situations, disagreements may arise regarding the rights of access or what can be done on the property where the easement was granted. These disputes often arise because the parties do not understand or fail to abide by the agreement.

The laws and regulations that govern easements can be confusing. Our easement attorneys in Bryan, TX can review all documentation, provide legal advice about the best course of action in your situation, and represent you in a legal disagreement when necessary.
