It is "best typified in the right of way which one landowner, A, may enjoy over the land of another, B".[1] It is similar to real covenants and equitable servitudes;[2] in the United States, the Restatement (Third) of Property takes steps to merge these concepts as servitudes.[3] Easements are helpful for providing pathways across two or more pieces of property, allowing individuals to access other properties or a resource, for example to fish in a privately owned pond or to have access to a public beach
