Q: I live in Ohio I found an 1947 easement that allows me to have foot traffic across my neighbors parcel. mentioned 1974
the easement was restated in 1974 then no ,mention to date. would the easement still be valid ?
A: Whether it is valid depends on the exact terms stated in the grant of easement as recorded in the county records. There is no need to keep re-stating and re-recording an easement to keep it valid. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local real estate attorney to search the county records and review the recorded easements and deeds, to determine the status of the easement.
