Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight

The answer is yes
. There is no requirement for the easement to be filed with the Registrar of Deeds in order for it to be valid. The Registrar of Deeds simply records
the easement so that it is public record and may be seen by others, and also so that there is a formal copy on the books. But there is no statute that invalidates the easement provided that it is (1) in writing and (2) signed by the servient estate
holder (the property granting the easement).
Now, if there has been some non-mention of the easement during a sale, etc, then that can be cause for a suit. However, the easement itself remains valid, arguably, if a copy may be found.
I hope this helps and clarifies. If this is not what you had wanted to hear, I am sorry. Please note: I aim to give you genuine
information and not necessarily to tell you only what you wish to hear. Please, rate me on the quality of my information and do not punish me for my honesty. I understand that hearing things less than optimal is not easy, and I empathize.
