What is a Deed of Grant of Easement?
A Deed of Grant of Easement will enable one property (known as a dominant tenement) to have rights over a piece of land (the servient tenement) that is owned by another party. There are many reasons that you might want to use a Deed of Grant of Easement. For example, if one property owner wants to grant a neighbouring property a right of way over their property. Granting a right of way is the most common reason that our customers use this template.

When to Grant an Easement Over Property
There are many situations when you would use the Deed of Grant of Easement. A common example is when the owner on an adjoining piece of property needs to cross your property. This could occur if they need to put a small portion of their driveway on your land, because of the way the boundary lines were formed.
Another reason you may have to use a Deed of Grant of Easement is if the tenant on the land next to yours must place underground services. There may be a need to dig a ditch on your property to provide for utilities supplying a neighbouring property. For example, this might be for mains water, sewerage, electricity, gas, television, cable or phone lines.
The Deed of Grant of Easement will state the terms of the easement. Therefore, it will not permit any no unnecessary use of the land. You could also use a clause in a conveyance deed or a transfer deed. However, it is better to use a template that has been designed specifically for this purpose.
