Hi, Michael, Thank you for including the recitation of the easement rights.
Generally, when an easement is granted, the dominant estate (the property benefitting from the easement) has paid the owner of the servient estate (the property encumbered by the easement). If the owner of the servient estate sells his property, the easement runs with the land and the new owner must comply with the easement. When the owner of the dominant estate sells his property, the new owner has the benefit of the easement because the easement runs with the land.
When easements are granted, the document usually recites how the costs of repairs and maintenance shall be divided and it appears from the excerpt which you posted, that the document granting the easement in question has addressed that issue in that it provides that the owner of the property which benefits from the easement must contribute to the cost of maintenance of the lakefront and the docks. Therefore, that document granted you the right to request their share of the costs of maintenance.
