    Default Servient Estate's Liability For Use of an Easement

    Connecticut
    In 1971 no one cared about taxes or lawsuits on our easement granted on our property to 3 properties across the street. After being sued for a slip and fall on another property we own, we are worried about a potential suit from this easement.

    Further, one of the 3 properties with rights was subdivided about 10 years ago and and another house built on it. Now the additional house thinks they have rights. Am I obligated to maintain, insure, pay taxes on a right of way for all these extra people, their friends, family, relatives? I fenced off my side and have barely used it since the ROW was granted.

    Do I have options? I don't want to be nasty, but it seems like I am taking on extra liability and taxes for someone else's enjoyment.

    It's just conjecture to provide a reply when the wording of the easement is unknown to us. The questions you ask all relate to the wording of the grant, which we don't have before us.
