Easement Appendant Law and Legal Definition

Easement appendant is an easement created to benefit another tract of land, the use of easement being incident to the ownership of that other tract. It is a right to use adjoining property that transfers with the land. The parcel of land that benefits from the easement is the dominant tenement. The servient tenement is the parcel of land that provides the easement.

An easement appendant or appurtenant runs with the land; it is the subject of transfer and will pass by a conveyance of the estate to which it is appurtenant. [Messenger v. Ritz, 345 Ill. 433 (Ill. 1931)].
