Balancing the Grantor and Grantee's Rights to Use an Easement
Brad Kuhn and Jillian Friess Leivas presented “Balancing the Grantor and Grantee's Rights to Use an Easement: A Case Study of 18131 Ventura Blvd, LLC v. 5223 Lindley, LLC” during the Los Angeles Association of Professional Landmen's (LAAPL) meeting on May 19, 2022 in Long Beach, CA.
During their presentation, Brad and Jillian elaborated on what happens when language in an easement is ambiguous. They reviewed the unpublished case of 18131 Ventura Blvd, LLC v. 5223 Lindley, LLC and analyzed what the easement language of “exclusive perpetual easement” means as to the respective rights of the grantor and grantee.
LAAPL was formed in 1957 by Los Angeles area land managers. LAAPL serves to further the education and broaden the scope of the petroleum landman and to promote effective communication between its members and government, community and industry on energy-related issues.
