What is an easement?

An easement is a legal document that conveys limited property rights from the Grantor (Property Owner) to the Grantee (Marshall Township Municipal Sanitary Authority (MTMSA)). This document is usually recorded in the office of the Allegheny County Recorder of Deeds. A sanitary sewer easement creates a non-exclusive, perpetual right to use a portion of property for sanitary sewer purposes. This provides MTMSA with access rights to repair, replace, inspect, enlarge, change, maintain, test and/or remove the sanitary sewer located within the easement.
