Arizona Easements and Rights of Way
This program, which is tailored to Arizona statutes and case law, is designed to help surveyors understand the various types of easements and their elements and nature - both written and unwritten. Many surveyors deal with writing and interpreting easements and right of way descriptions virtually every day when performing boundary and Land Title Surveys, and when working for developers, utility companies and governmental entities. It is important that they be well-versed in what easements and rights of way are, how they differ from other similar instruments, how they are created and terminated, and in the broad variety and characteristics of easements. This course will provide a good foundation for understanding the myriad aspects of easements and rights of way.
