An Easement to Yourself
Several people have told me; you can't grant an easement to yourself. The reason being; you own the properties, why would you need to give yourself permission to use it?
I'm of the opinion; you are not granting an easement to yourself; parcel A is granting an easement to parcel B. They both just happen to be owned by the same entity.
What's your opinion?
I often see a "Declaration of Easements and Covenants" recorded for subdivisions prior to any lots being sold, so i say it depends on how you go about doing it.
Funny you should bring that up today: Yesterday I had an attorney tell me it's fine to write an easement across one of my client's land to grant an easement to himself.
Not sure how it's going to work but the client is stopping by today to go over it.
