When easements are drafted, it’s crucial to determine the purpose of the easement itself in order to avoid any confusion in the future. However, not many people understand why intent is so important when drafting easements. In this article, we are going to discuss why it’s important to determine the purpose of an easement.

Considering Intent when Drafting Easements

So, why is it so important to consider the purpose of an easement when drafting it? The short answer – because considering intent helps clarify why the easement exists and how it will be used now and in the future. The intent of the parties matters a great deal when drafting an easement as that will help guide the purpose. It’s important to be detailed when drafting easements and to include the intent/purpose to avoid any confusion or conflict down the road. Bland description of easements can result in a lot of conflict between parties who perhaps made assumptions about what the easement was for. If there is a conflict and the purpose of the easement is laid out in detail, these matters can be resolved relatively quickly. If the purpose is not included, it may lead to a drawn out legal battle.
