An Easement to Yourself
Platted easements through lots owned by the same owner work becasue the deed says lot x of XXX plat. Lot x on the plat has an easment, so the easment is created by the deed.
The clean way to do it is reserve an easement when you dispose of the property.
It is statutorily prohibited in the great State of Cali.
Sections 805 & 811 of the Civil Code.
It all depends on the language in the document.
We haven’t had any issues adding language to survive merger of title.
In order for an easement to exist you need a dominant and a servient parcel.
Essentially, You cannot limit your bundle of rights to yourself. The only way that can happen is if you sell those rights to someone else that in turn may be granted an easement to access and utilize those specific bundles of rights.
Maybe you create a corporation that you own, but technically speaking, you're not the owner of those rights anymore. The company is.
