Who owns an easement?

Typically, the property owner. Everyone should have a Plat of Survey of their property. It will show the location and size of any easement(s) on your property. It should also show the size of the easement. A neighbor does not have the right to be on your easement unless you have given them that right. Frequently, a person feels that they have the right to be on the easement portion of a property, regardless of which side of a property line the easement is on. Again, easements are typically on someone's private property. Only the property owner, utility companies, and the Town of Dyer have a right to be on an easement.
