Easement Solutions

Designed to improve asset management and data accuracy, integrity, and accessibility.

Become more efficient with less risk

Our suite of solutions provide an integrated approach to easement projects using data that is derived directly from official land registry records, making it reliable, accurate, and complete. Through a flexible method modernized for municipal governments and utility providers, we analyze and map easements and other land-related data to help make easement management easier than ever before.

Easement Report

Contains a list of all registered easement type instruments within an organization’s jurisdiction that can potentially create an easement through the Land Registration process.

Document Review and Evaluation

Review the registered easement type instruments identified in the Easement Report to evaluate whether or not easements are created.

Easement Mapping

Generation of polygon features identifying the spatial extent of the valid easement instruments as interpreted from the descriptions and plan information over existing parcel mapping fabric.

Easement Usage Identification

Identify the purpose of the registered easement based on document interpretation, e.g., storm water, sanitary sewer, hydro, etc.

Ongoing Easement Mapping Maintenance

Upon completion of the initial easement mapping project, provide map maintenance based on monitoring of new easement and release of easement registrations.

Easement FAQs

Municipalities and utilities perform duties associated with property asset inventory projects and easement identification projects. The Easement Report is designed to help you do just that and it’s only available through Teranet.

Why is the Easement Report for municipalities and utilities so valuable?

Teranet’s Easement Report is an electronic notification of registered easement information queried from the POLARIS® Title Database. The Report provides an inventory of all registered easement interests in a jurisdiction including municipal, utility and private easements and supports a number of municipal and utility applications that require easement information, including engineering, planning, infrastructure and transportation applications.

The Easement Report is a compilation of easement information that municipalities and utilities need to help them function efficiently – and it’s all bundled into a convenient, one-time report.

What is included in each report?

  • Nine-digit Property Identification Number (PIN) from POLARIS®
  • Instrument Number of the easement document
  • Instrument Type
  • Registration Date
  • Legal Description
