ST MICHAEL'S
Easements

EASEMENTS  - LAWYERS - FUTURE RAMIFICATIONS


     
Easements out to Kipling or Crosswicks seem to have been dropped --- but might be resumed again if they fail with the septic.   Here is some info should you be approached.
    

     St. Michael's property goes out to Crosswicks Road at a narrow point  where their land converges with two other properties right at the road .  We believe they thought that they had the right , therefore, to  run their pipe out to the road at this location and this apparently appeared on a recent plan.  That would, however, have encroached  upon the two adjoining properties, who, as we understand it, have not given permission for an easement . It seems as if this means that St. Michael's will be looking for other properties upon which to obtain an easement .  Property owners who are approached to allow an easement should consider that it might be advisable to obtain a lawyer.
   

    The agreement would be between the property owner and St Michael's and could involve, besides landscaping issues, a detriment to the value of the home, as use of the area with the easement  might be limited . In addition, there is some concern that the easement might, if the contract does not properly specify, allow St Michael's  church-goers to park back on the residential streets ( as they often do now ) and to use the property with the  easement for access. This would affect all of the neighbors as the Sunday parking might be in front of their houses.   This could be avoided, most likely with a properly worded agreement .
    

      In addition, another concern that was brought up was the possibility that at some point in the future an "Emergency Vehicle" route or alternative exit route might be sought due to the numbers of guests at the facility, and the easement area  might make a convenient access.  There are a variety of reasons for which a township can take property by eminent domain.  It might be best to have a lawyer respond to some of these ideas before granting an easement without being fully advised.
