Reservation of Easement Law and Legal Definition

Reservation of easement is the creation in behalf of the grantor of a new right, issuing out of the same grant, of an easement appurtenant to the grantor's remaining land.

The doctrine of implied reservation of an easement by a grantor of land does not seem to have been adopted under some jurisdiction; but in other states where the doctrine has been applied, the weight of authority seems to be that, in order to imply such reservation in the grantor, the easement in question must be one of necessity as distinguished from convenience.
