An easement agreement can benefit both parties involved. We have a situation where we need to put in a new tile line to our house. In order to get the best drainage we need to cross over our neighbors driveway to install the tile.
Thankfully our neighbor was agreeable to this, and we had an attorney write up legal papers that stated we had driveway easement to her property.
We benefited because we have access to get our tile installed. She is a single lady, and the benefit to her is that we agreed to help her clear some junk and debris from her property.
