Q: Is saying that an easement or an amendment to an easement "is appurtenant to the (dominant name) parcels" sufficient to
ensure it runs to successors. (ie "runs with the land") in a recorded document.
That is 'step one' but there is more to this than generally meets the eye. Consulting with a local real estate lawyer is the BEST way to insure this is done right.
Indeed buying property without an attorney is essentially the equivalent of buying a pig in a poke.
SELLING property without an attorney is essentially placing yourself at risk of lawsuits in the future.
Creating an easement or license or similar land use agreement without an attorney is buying litigation.
Don't be 'penny wise and pound foolish' about this. Get licensed professional help to do this right!
Thomas. R. Morris agrees with this answer
A: One cannot determine in the abstract whether that’s sufficient. I would want to look at the whole document and entire transaction. One example of a phrase that would clarify that it runs with the land is “the easement runs with the land”.
