Washington Easement Deed

According to state statutes in Washington easements are created to allow one person to use another’s real property for a specific purpose. An easement in this state can be established by a deed in writing (easement deed), by implication, or by prescription. Easements established by dedication are property rights that cannot be extinguished or altered without the approval of the easement owner, unless the plat or other document creating the dedicated easement provides for an alternative method to extinguish or alter the easement (RCW 64.04.175). Solar easements for assuring continued access to direct sunlight for solar energy systems can be created in this state and privately negotiated (RCW 64.04.140). A solar easement can only be created by written agreement, but is not authorized to be created by an implied or prescriptive easement (RCW 64.04.160). An easement deed in Washington should specify the terms, duration, and location of the easement.
