Hi, Jim, I would be glad to assist you once again with your easement issue,
If your deed provides that the easement is 30 feet, then that is what you are entitled to. In fact, the title company from which you purchased title insurance at the time of settlement, probably insured a 30-foot easement. So, yes, you can make the servient estate widen the easement to what your deed states and is more than likely what the servient estate's deed reads also. Therefore, he is very aware of your rights,
