What is the Massachusetts Easement Deed

An easement is a non-possessory and non-ownership right to use another person's property for a specific use. The easement deed is the legal instrument that creates this right. Easements are either affirmative or negative and can be appurtenant or an easement in gross. An appurtenant easement benefits the dominant estate and runs with the land. Easements in gross benefit an individual or legal entity. In Massachusetts, easements can be created by deed, will, or contract; or by prescription or implication. In a conveyance of real estate in Massachusetts, all rights, easements, privileges, and appurtenances belonging to the granted estate are included in the conveyance, unless a contrary intention is stated in the deed (183-15).

According to section 187-1A of the Massachusetts General Laws, an easement of direct sunlight can be acquired over the land of another by direct grant or covenant, or by a solar access permit. The contents of a solar easement should follow the guidelines as set forth in 187-1 of the Massachusetts General Laws. When a person erects a house or other structure with windows overlooking another's land, they do not, by the mere continuance of such windows, acquire an easement of light and air so as to prevent the erection of a building on such land (187-1).
A right or privilege of way or other easement cannot be acquired by adverse use or enjoyment upon or over the land of another, unless the use or enjoyment is continued uninterrupted for twenty years (183-2).

An easement deed should be signed and acknowledged by the grantor. A real estate deed that is required to be recorded in order to provide constructive notice must have a certificate of acknowledgment or proof of execution endorsed on the deed or attached to it. The certificate is recorded with the deed (183-29). An easement deed can be acknowledged by one or more of the grantors or by the attorney executing it. The officer before whom acknowledgements are made should endorse the certificate of acknowledgement on the deed. Acknowledgments made in Massachusetts can be made before a notary public or justice of the peace. Acknowledgments made out of state may be made before any of the officers listed in 183-30b of the Massachusetts General Laws (183-30).

In order for an easement deed to be valid against people other than the grantor, his heirs, and devisees, and persons having actual notice it must be recorded in the registry of deeds in the county or district where the land lies (183-4). The record of an easement deed, duly acknowledged or proved as provided, is conclusive evidence of the delivery of the instrument, in favor of purchasers for value without notice (183-5). Massachusetts has a race-notice recording act, which means that constructive notice is determined by the recording of documents.

I needed to add my partner to my warranty deed and deeds.com made it easy to understand what form I needed, attached a great explanation of the form and a sample of the form filled out. Couldn\'t be happier. In fact I\'m researching a Revocable Transfer on Death Deed now and they\'ve given me the confidence to rewrite my own will on my own.

This was the easiest, quickest, most understandable way I've seen yet to retrieve deeds from various counties.

The government websites are "clunky" and each one seems different than the other.

I like this service and will use them again in the future.

5 Stars isn't enough! I worked with KVH today (12-30-20) to get some deeds filed in Dallas County before the end of the year. Timing was critical and I thought my only option was to record in person. Someone suggested I try Deeds.com, and I'm very glad I did. KVH provided excellent service. Everything was quick and efficient, and I highly recommend using this service. Thanks!
