The Help You Need From a Queens Easement Lawyer

Vague and ambiguous easement agreements lead to complex and contentious disputes that involve:

  • Trespass
  • Interference
  • Misuse
  • Encroachment of improvements
  • Termination
  • Abandonment
  • Monetary damages
  • Liability issues

Property easement laws — also known as right of way laws — govern the right to use a part of someone's property for a specific purpose. Surveys are conducted to define property lines to prevent questions or disputes over land ownership. Questions about dominant and servient land must be answered.

Prescriptive easements or implied easements can arise when a property is used for a certain amount of time. A neighbor crossing the corner of property for years may provide a prescriptive easement to continue.
