What rights does the easement holder have to my property?

Author: Jessica | 12/19/18

If the Whidbey Camano Land Trust or another qualified organization accepts a conservation easement, it is obligated in perpetuity to oversee and enforce the easement’s terms and conditions. For example, such an organization has the right to enter and inspect the property (usually once a year) to ensure that the terms of the agreement are being upheld. Except in unusual circumstances, these visits are scheduled with the landowner. Unless specifically addressed in the easement, the organization does not have the right to use your property.
