When you buy land in Texas, you probably have specific plans for what you want to do with that property. You may want to build a home, or you may want to develop the land at some point in the future. Whether you already own the property or are considering it, an important first step is determining whether there is an easement that could affect your property use.
An easement is essentially another party's right to use or access property belonging to someone else. It's possible there is an easement on your property, and you may be completely unaware of it. It is in your interests to know if there is one and what it could mean for you. This is especially important if you are planning to build, add a fence, put in a pool or develop the land.
