Thank you for using JustAnswer.

A non-exclusive easement means that you have the right to use it, but you can't stop anyone else from using it as well. That is, the owner of the property can give an easement to others who would want to use it. So multiple homeowners could have an easement and use it, as well as the owner of the property could use that road.

Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable.
