Quasi-Community Property

ABC Blocks

The method of acquiring an easement upon another’s real property by continued and regular use without permission of the property owner for a period of years required by the law of the state (commonly five years or more). examples: phillip packer drives across the corner of ralph roundup’s ranch to reach packer’s barn regularly for a period of ten years; for a decade ronald retailer uses the alley behind marjorie howard’s house to reach his storeroom. in each case the result is a “prescriptive easement” for that specific use. it effectively gives the user an easement for use but not ownership of the property.
