1. In Tennessee, easement rights are a fairly frequent source of conflict and disagreement. What is an easement? How does someone obtain easement rights? How does an easement affect the person upon whose land the easement is located? If an easement is created by a written document, then the first place to look to determine what rights the easement holder has is that written document. Unfortunately, many written easements that affect property in Tennessee are not clear or detailed enough. Two frequent issues that seem to arise in real estate litigation involving easements concern fences and gates. Who can put up a gate or a fence on an easement? An interesting issue arose in the Tennessee case of Mize v. Owenby. In that case, the easement holder, who had the right to go across the land of the person who owned the land, wanted the owner of the land to take down the gates at the entrance to the easement, and to replace them with cattle guards. The Tennessee Supreme Court agreed with the easement holder, and required the landowner to replace the gates with cattle guards so that there was less of a burden upon the easement holder (who had obviously grown tired of getting in and out of his car to open and to close the gates).
