An easement is a legal right allowing someone to use or access another person’s property without owning it. The Uniform Easement Relocation Act (UERA) is a model law that states can enact to allow the owner of a property burdened by an easement to relocate it without the consent of the party that is benefited by the easement. This fact sheet will provide an overview of the UERA and how it impacts landowners that are burdened by an easement, the servient estate owners, and the parties benefited by the easement, the dominant estate owners.
