Easements in Colorado | Boulder Real Estate Lawyer
As a Boulder real estate lawyer James Newell understands that an acute understanding of the law, an eye for detail, and broad experience are necessary to be able to identify and resolve the dizzying variety of complex, often archaic legal issues that may come up in any given easement matter.
An easement is, essentially, an interest in land that allows the owner to use or control another person’s land for a specific purpose. A prime example is the right to pass through another person’s property in order to access a public road. The property that benefits from an easement is known as the dominant estate while the property burdened by the easement is known as the servient estate. In general, easements do not give the holder the right to take from, possess, sell, or improve the land.
Colorado law pertaining to easements is often particularly difficult to understand due to the high number of antiquated terms and concepts that still loom large in relevant case law. Fully understanding your rights and obligations related to easements and properly addressing discrepancies through negotiation or court action requires the assistance of a qualified real estate attorney.
