Legal seminar on easements, boundary disputes

Attorney and real estate broker Peter Brewer will lead a legal seminar and discussion on easements, encroachments, and boundary disputes from noon to 1 p.m. on June 22 via Zoom. Sponsored by the Nevada County Superior Court, Brewer will explain the four types of easements, how they are created, the scope of each, and the elements necessary for their creation. He will also delve into the difference between prescriptive easements and adverse possession, as well as explaining exclusive easements versus non-exclusive easements. Other topics will include encroachments and what to do about them, as well as boundary disputes, including the doctrine of agreed boundary and what elements must be met to establish an agreed boundary. Brewer will also briefly discuss easements versus licenses, and will explore some interesting and sometimes startling case decisions regarding the above.

To register, email or call 530-362-5329. Send a $15 check to Nevada County Law Library, 201 Church St., Suite 9, Nevada City, CA 95959. The Zoom link will be sent to each participant a few days prior to June 22.
