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.
