Easements FAQs

Municipalities and utilities perform duties associated with property asset inventory projects and easement identification projects. The Easement Report is designed to help you do just that and it’s only available through Teranet.

Teranet’s Easement Report is an electronic notification of registered easement information queried from the POLARIS® Title Database. The Report provides an inventory of all registered easement interests in a jurisdiction including municipal, utility and private easements and supports a number of municipal and utility applications that require easement information, including engineering, planning, infrastructure and transportation applications.

The Easement Report is a compilation of easement information that municipalities and utilities need to help them function efficiently – and it’s all bundled into a convenient, one-time report.
