You made an offer on what you consider the perfect piece of property for you. As you began the due diligence phase of your real estate transaction, you were told that the possibility of there being at least one easement on the property was high.
An easement allows someone else to use or occupy a portion of your property. Does this mean that you won't own that portion of the property? No. You retain legal title to the land. Someone else simply has the right to use it, but only for a specified purpose and only the piece of land identified in the easement.
