“What is an easement in gross?”

An “easement in gross” is a right which attaches to an individual person (or legal entity), not a piece of property. So, for example, if you have an easement in gross to cross your neighbor’s land on to your land, it means that the easement is for your own personal use, and may not be a right which would be included with your land should you choose to sell your land.
