There are all sorts of things that can be issues in major real estate transactions. One such thing are easements.
The city of Pontiac, several miles northwest of Detroit, is continuing its legal dispute with the Ottawa Towers office buildings this year over the use of an adjacent parking garage.
An easement is generally described as a nonpossessory interest in another person's land usually stemming from a want or need to use someone else's land for which the other person does not have ownership. Basically, an easement allows the holder to use the property, but prevents them from excluding others from the land.
