How can I find out about Easements on my property?

It's important to know about any easements, as they can affect how you use your property and may impact future development plans. To find out about easements on your property, you can take the following steps:

  • Check your property deed: Look at your property deed to see if there are any easements mentioned. Easements are often noted on the deed, so this is a good place to start.
  • Check your property survey if one has been done: Your property survey will show the exact boundaries of your property and any easements that may exist. It may also show any access rights or restrictions.
  • Check with the county Register of Deeds Office to ask if there are any easements on your property. They may have records or maps that can provide this information.
  • Check your original Subdivision, Plat or Condo Map: If your property is within a subdivision, plat or condo, the easements are often noted on the original maps.
  • Check with utility companies: Utility companies often have easements on private property to allow them to access their infrastructure. You can contact them to ask if there are any easements on your property.
  • Check with a title company: You can hire a title company to conduct a title search on your property. This will reveal any easements that exist on your property.
