    Product Description

    Easements, rights of way, and access are essential to the use and enjoyment of land and associated amenities, such as beaches and lakes—for residential, commercial, and recreational activities—and can have a major effect on property value. Restrictions can regulate the use of a single property, several properties, or an entire development or private community—and often regulate the rights, obligations, and use of common amenities therein. Yet this area of the law and the application of it to specific circumstances can be both confusing and uncertain. Disputes relating to easements and restrictions are a regular source of litigation in the Land Court and issues related to both often arise in residential and commercial real estate titles.

    A working knowledge of the law relating to easements, rights of way, and restrictions is invaluable to real estate practitioners, governmental agency and utility company attorneys, title examiners, developers, surveyors, engineers, and paralegals. Let MCLE's expert real estate faculty bring you up-to-date on the law, recent decisions, and practical tips to help you understand and deal with a variety of topics involving easements and restrictions, and their relationship to the use and enjoyment of land, beach rights, and other amenities.
