When complications arise between a landowner and the easement holder, you should seek legal advice before confronting the other party. Remember that, oftentimes, the person on the other side of the dispute is an adjoining landowner and neighbor who will continue to own the property long after the dispute has been resolved. Therefore, you want to hire an attorney that has the ability to resolve the problems without destroying the neighborly relationship, if that is possible.
The Law Offices of Carolyn C. Phillips has worked with many landowners to resolve their property line disputes whether it be simply to communicate with the neighbor and draft an agreed to easement for recording to protecting your property in court because the other party believes they have a right to either own, possess, or use the property you own as they wish.
An easement does not mean the owner of the easement owns your property, but that the other party has, somehow, acquired a right to cross over the land, or use it for a specific purpose. Easements can be for utility lines, ingress and egress, roadways, landscaping, the taking of lumber, or even an ocean view.
Claims to easements and the interpretation of recorded easements are often the source of misunderstandings and neighbor disputes. If an easement document, which is essentially a contract between two property owners, is not properly drafted, you can end up in court. Whether you have an easement claim on another’s property or someone claims to have rights to your, our lawyers will evaluate the specifics of your case, educate you on the law that applies in your case, and guide you through the legal process to get your property issues resolved.
We provide expert legal counsel for the following types of easement issues:
- Adverse possession
- Quiet title actions

Phillips will try to help you resolve your matter without court intervention, however, if we are unable to resolve your matter, we have the background and experience to litigate the matter through trial if necessary.
