Easements, Licenses & Restrictions

Generally speaking, an easement is a right to enter or use someone else’s property for a specific reason. It remains in force even if the property is sold and is also transferable. Conversely, a license is permission to enter or use someone else’s property for a specific reason. Licenses are typically revocable. Deed restrictions, which include CC&Rs, restrict what you can do with your property and are very difficult to defeat. Each of these instruments are used by our attorneys to help our clients accomplish their unique objectives. As real estate lawyers, we at Lowenthal often assist clients with:
