An easement is defined as a non-possessory right to use another's land for a specific and precise purpose that is not inconsistent with the other's simultaneous right to use the same property. Often, an easement is contained in the body of a deed providing for the outright conveyance of a parcel of real estate. A Pennsylvania easement can also be created by a written and signed agreement or by a deed of easement. The easement deed should specify the terms and duration of the easement.

The Pennsylvania Statute of Frauds requires that any transfer of an interest in real estate, including a grant of easement, be in writing and duly signed in order to be binding (33 P.S. 1). Before an easement deed can be recorded it must be acknowledged by the grantor. Acknowledgments in Pennsylvania may be made before a before a judge of a court of record, a clerk or deputy clerk of a court having seal, a recorder of deeds, a notary public, or a justice of the peace (21 P.S. 291.2). An easement deed acknowledged out-of-state will be valid to record in Pennsylvania if it complies with the laws of such place where acknowledgments were taken (21 P.S. 41). A certificate of acknowledgment by an officer under seal must be included with a duly acknowledged easement deed, whether the deed has been acknowledged in this state or in another state (21 P.S. 46).

The legal effect of recording an easement deed is to give constructive notice to subsequent purchasers, mortgagees, and/or judgment creditors of the parties to said agreement (21 P.S. 357). An easement deed that has been duly acknowledged or proved should be recorded in the county where the property subject to the easement is located.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

Received the documents, but the explanation and process is not as straightforward as I would have liked. The Instructions and Sample document were not always easy to follow.

I may just have a real estate lawyer perform the task.

Great resource and everything went smoothly except email was performed through autofill prompted by the system but the autofill added a letter that gave wrong email. I can still sign in with wrong email since the system recognizes it as mine even though it is wrong. May be my fault and not the system since I did not catch the discrepancy in time. I would suggest a field that allows a correction to any misinformation prior to signing out from the initial sign on. Still think it is a great resource if all documents are processed and accepted by the pwers to be. Thanks.
