How can I learn more about easements on my property?

There are several types of easements: drainage, utility, scenic, etc. Easements on your lot are typically for drainage and utilities. Although you own the property, easements give certain public and private entities the right to enter the property to perform repair and maintenance. All easements on your property should be shown on the lot survey or plat, or described within the title documents.
