Simply put, an easement is a vested right of someone other than the property owner to use the property in some limited capacity. Unlike a license, the property owner cannot simply revoke an easement when it is no longer convenient. Instead, an easement is a titled interest in land that can be bought and sold, may be recorded as part of the property's chain of title - and under the right circumstances can remain binding even after the property changes hands. In other cases, an easement may come into being based on the circumstances. These are called implied easements but are often no less real in the legal sense than those that are deliberately created by property owners.

Most people think of landlord-tenant disputes as simple and straightforward. While that may be true in the residential context - where most such disputes involve rental payments - the landlord-tenant dynamic can be quite complicated in the realm of commercial property. Commercial leases are much more complex than their residential counterparts and often grant tenants both freedoms and responsibilities that would be unthinkable in a residential contract.

Whatever the reason, it's important to be aware of Minnesota's rules for relocation after the final custody order has been established.
