What happens to the easement if I sell the land or die?

by Bergen Tjossem

A conserved land may be sold or passed down to one’s heirs. The easement agreement remains a permanent part of the title and will run with the land even after its transfer. The landowner may continue to use and enjoy the land in ways consistent with the easement, which may include ranching, recreation or other uses. In some circumstances, easements may allow for additional homesites on a small portion of the property, or may provide for small “disturbance envelopes’ within which the uses are not restricted by the easement.
