How can a land owner get an easement removed from their land?

If you can locate the owner of the easement, and that person is willing to release their rights to the easement, the process is fairly simple. The easement owner would need to sign a "release of easement" in the presence of a notary public, and the release would need to be recorded in the county where the property is located. Upon recording of the release, the easement would no longer affect your land.

In most cases, an easement owner does not have to release rights to an easement if he does not want to. You should contact an attorney who specializes in real estate law who can review the title to the premises and explain your options.
