An item that caught my attention this week was easements. This is a topic that I didn’t understand completely until this week. We found out that there were two types of easements: affirmative and negative. Affirmative easement allows the easement holder the right to do something on someone else’s land. Example would be allowing a person to go across your land. Negative easement, on the other hand, disallows the person that owns the land from making changes to their land.
Currently, we see a lot of solar fields being built and people are turning to solar power homes. While I consider myself fortunate to live in the country where I have fields that surround my house, others might not agree; I hadn’t thought of living in a community where you have to consider what your neighbor is doing if you were considering building a solar power home. This would be a prime example, per discussed in our textbook that you would consider obtaining a negative easement.
The article I found to discuss is Prevent Neighbors From Blocking Your Solar Panels: Get Solar Access Easements. Per the article, “A solar easement restricts what your neighbor can build or grow on his property within his or her airspace, because the neighbor cannot block sunlight to your solar panels”. (Farkas, 2015)
The below questions came to mind when researching easements:
Would you execute an easement regarding your property to help your neighbor?
Do you think signing an easement would affect a future sell of your property if you decided to move?
The article discusses neighborhood associations and their requirements. Would signing an easement be a lot different than moving into a neighborhood that has requirements?
