III. Easements

Appurtenant:

Ex:Dita owned a large parcel of land adjacent to a stream.  she sold the part of the property directly contiguous to the stream to Steve but reserved an easement to cross from her remaining property to the stream.  Her easement is appurtenant.  It was created to benefit the use of her retained parcel.  When she sells the retained parcel, she no longer can use the easement. (195)

In Gross:

Ex:Steve granted Dita the right to swim in a pond on Steve’s property.  Dita is not a neighbor.  This is probably an easement in gross.  Dita may enjoy swimming in the pond regardless of what property she owns or whether she owns any property at all. (195)

Affirmative:

Ex:Steve granted a right of way to Dita.  Without this easement, Dita would be guilty of trespass if she walked across Steve’s land.  With the easement, however, Dita may cross without being liable for trespass.  This is affirmative. (197)

Negative:

Ex:Steve granted Dita an easement of view over his property.  Without this easement, Steve could build on his property in a way that blocked Dita’s view.  After granting the easement, Steve no longer has the right.  Dita has a negative easement. (197)
