Easement or R/W

An easement (utility) may be defined as the limited right to use another’s land for a special purpose. Such use must not be inconsistent with any other uses already being made of the land. An easement is a privilege connected with the land and is therefore not a possessory interest or fee.

A Right-of-Way (R/W or ROW) may be defined as any strip or area of land, including surface and overhead or underground space, which is granted by deed or easement for the construction and maintenance of specified linear elements such as power and telephone lines; roadways; gas, oil, water, and other pipelines; sewers.
