Easements to Private Beach

    Our original Association (28 lots) has deeded rights to a right-of-way beach.  Our deed recites, ". . . including all right, title, and interest in and to the beach and shore front of said Lot . . . ."

    Historically, the 28-lot Association has used the beach for swimming and sitting on the beach, launching of small boats, storage of kayaks and canoes, etc.  The owner of the beach has recently changed and we hope to obtain an opinion as to what the actual deeded rights include.  The previous owner had imposed reasonable restrictions on the use of the beach area (i.e. no dogs; no campfires).  What, if any, restrictions can or cannot be placed on the use of the beach by those with deeded rights and can the owner of the beach impose what may be deemed as "unreasonable" restrictions.

    Thank you.

    Since it says, "ALL right, title and interest," that sounds like you OWN the beach.  But I'd have to see the actual deed to see what else it says.  If you want to email me the book and page number and the county so I can look it up online, I'll take a look at it.  My email is
