Structuring Complex Easement Agreements in Commercial Real Estate Deals

Reciprocal easement agreements (REAs) are necessary documents to address access rights for adjacent development, shared utility infrastructure, the construction, maintenance, and repair of shared components, and the allocation of costs for such shared components. In recent years, REAs and commercial leases also have presented unique challenges to the repurposing of shopping centers and addressing shared spaces affected by emerging technology, such as parking areas. Our program will provide a framework for the drafting of reciprocal easements.
