An easement deed in Delaware gives the easement holder a right to use the land of another for a specific purpose. This type of agreement gives the easement holder a non-possessory interest in the land. Once the easement has been granted, the grantor may not interfere with the grantee's use of the easement. Additionally, the easement holder generally cannot expand his use of the easement beyond the original purpose for which it was granted. Easements fall into two categories: an easement in gross or an easement appurtenant.

An easement in Delaware can be created by an express easement, an easement by prescription, or, an easement by necessity. A conservation easement, created for the purpose of protecting property, can also be created by a voluntary agreement that allows a landowner to limit the type or amount of development, while allowing the owner to maintain private ownership. Conservation easements are created in the same manner as other easements in this state ( 6902).

As an instrument that affects title to real property, an easement deed in Delaware must be signed by the grantor and duly acknowledged before it is presented for recording. An easement deed can be acknowledged in any county in Delaware, by any party to the instrument. Acknowledgements in Delaware may be made in the Superior Court, before any judge in Delaware, notary public, before two justices of the peace for the same county, or before the mayor of the city of Wilmington. Easements can also be proved in the court by one or more of the subscribing witnesses ( 122). The acknowledgement or proof of the instrument should be in a certificate that is attached to or endorsed on the easement deed ( 123). If the easement deed is acknowledged out of state, acknowledgements can be taken by any of the officers listed under 129 of the Delaware Revised Statutes.

Delaware has a pure race recording statute. Once an easement deed has been acknowledged or proved and certified as provided, it should be recorded in the recorder's office for the county where such lands are located ( 151). The recording of an easement for one county will take effect only in respect to lands or tenements mentioned in the deed situated in such county ( 152).The time of recording will determine the priority of the easement over other documents pertaining to the same property ( 153).

Process is easy but system would not accept 3 different credit cards on first day. No phone number to call. Sent message and response was all 3 cards must have been declined. However, next day one of those cards went through with no problem.

After spending $21 to obtain a Quit Claim Deed form, I realized that I was in over my head. There are a lot of legal considerations and I am not familiar enough with the legal terms and choices to feel confident doing it myself. I since hired a paralegal service to prepare my Quit Claim. I wish I knew the knowledge required before I purchased.

I love deeds.com - hands down, the quickest way to record a warranty deed. The process and communication is so quick - the recording transaction too. Worth the extra $20 to me for my time! I didn't spend over an hour driving around, talking to someone via a kiosk to record the deed, didn't have to spend the energy of loading kids into the car to come with me, etc. The efficiency and timely process is worth the cost! Love having this available! The whole process via deeds.com took less than 5 minutes to upload a document and less than 3 minutes to pay the invoice shortly thereafter. The final recording was in my inbox in less than an hour. Thank you!
