Legal Descriptions & Easements
A legal description (also referred to as a land description, property description, or land boundary description) is "A written statement recognized by law as to the definite location of a tract of land by reference to a survey, recorded map or adjoining property." (from: Glossaries of BLM Surveying and Mapping Terms, Second Edition,1980)
Easements often present unique problems in the negotiation and establishment of deed rights, a fact that often goes unnoticed when parties overemphasize the so-called “big picture”. Ehrhart Land Surveying is well versed in locating easements, writing easement descriptions, interpreting easement clauses, and determining reversionary rights. In short, we recognize that with easements, as with virtually every aspect of professional surveying, the devil is in the details.
