We can help when easements result in right of way disputes

Being a land owner or property owner is not only a respectable accomplishment, but a big responsibility. Not all property owners in Massachusetts use their land or property for personal uses. Some decide to open their property up to the public or open their property to other parties with an easement agreement. However, these agreements can go awry if a dispute about the land causes a rift between the parties.

For example, there could be a dispute regarding the boundaries of the easement. Other disputes arise when on party claims the other overused or overburdened the easement. And, sometimes, a party wants to relocate the easement.

As a land owner, you may feel like you have more right to the land than those you have partnered with. However, depending on the specifics of the contract, this may or may not be true. At Phillips & Angley, we take these disputes under careful consideration and can advise our clients on how to proceed.

It likely isn't blatantly obvious how to proceed when you are facing a right of way dispute over an easement agreement. That is why it's important to understand the law as it applied to the original contract. The circumstances surrounding the disagreement are often important as well. Balancing all the factors, information and laws in your area can help you determine the best course of action.

Hopefully the relationship between the parties to an easement dispute hasn't deteriorated to the point where communication is difficult or impossible. However, we aren't daunted by these stressful circumstances. Finding a result that is optimal for our client in the short and long run is our goal.
