An appurtenant easement can be released by the dominant estate. An appurtenant easement is also released if the necessity for the easement no longer exists. An appurtenant easement is one of two primary types of easements. The other type of easement is an easement in gross. An easement in gross is attached to a particular person but the appurtenant easement is attached to a particular parcel of land. Either of these types of easements may be created in a variety of ways (express grants, express reservation, necessity, implication, prescription, agreement, and by condemnation). Each may also be terminated in a variety of ways (lack of necessity, merger, release, abandonment, destruction, court order).
