In personam means that the easement currently on the property is for the person and is available only for a specific person. It also means a personal right. This makes sense too because the rest of the paragraph explains that the easment is over when the last living descendent of the person (the grantee) dies.
In personam means that this follows the person (or as the case here, people, including the descendants) and doesn't follow the land. So that if someone else were to get this property, the easement would not be on the property. A real estate lawyer in CO would know what this means but this is a term that applies to all states and is a term used in real estate.
In other words, this is not unique to CO but is available in all states.
Do you understand this concept? It's something obviously the lawyers you spoke with don't understand but real estate lawyers deal with this language all the time.
Please let me know if you need any more information and if you understand this as it is written.
Hi, just checking in to see if you still need help with your question. I need to know if you understand this before I continue with your question. Thanks!
