An aspect of property ownership that can understandably be confusing in Florida is how to handle easements. Two kinds of easements exist: implied and express. Whether a person has an implied or express easement, this means that he or she has a non-possessory, legally binding interest in the property of another individual. However, a lack of understanding of, or conflict involving, easements can easily lead to real estate litigation.

In some cases, people's lack of understanding of easements, including their creation, implementation and interpretation, may spark real estate litigation. Here is a look at what legal issues to consider when dealing with these types of property rights.
