I just bought a house, and was told that there is a 10'

Customer Question

I just bought a house, and was told that there is a 10' easement on the back of my lot because of a drainage ditch in the back. I was starting to set posts for a deck when the contractor for this development said I was to close to the property line. My understanding was that easement was 5' on either side of the property line or is all 10' on my side?

Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensedattorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Do you have a survey? Does the contractor have anything he can show you to illustrate the easement?
