Description: An easement is a right in the land of another. An oral promise to create an easement is not binding because of the statute of frauds since this involves a contract regarding the sale or transfer of land. Cross easements are reciprocal easements created by contract. One easement is granted in favor of premises of one party in consideration of a grant by such party of an easement in favor of premises of the other party. This form is a generic example that may be referred to when preparing such a form for your particular state. It is for illustrative purposes only. Local laws should be consulted to determine any specific requirements for such a form in a particular jurisdiction.
