    CLE Books updates Wisconsin Law of Easements

    Almost every deal involving real estate _ from sales to mortgages to land use _ also involves actual or potential easements. That's why your library should include the newly updated second edition of the Wisconsin Law of Easements, just released by State Bar CLE Books. Revised by the original author, veteran Wisconsin property law attorney Jesse Ishikawa, this mainstay of the State Bar's property law library analyzes and explains the complex legal principles underlying easements. It provides a comprehensive summary of the underlying common and statutory law, and includes recent case law. It also addresses developing and evolving issues.

    As anyone who has ever done a title search can attest, intentional easements come in a variety of forms and involve a wide range of issues, from utility lines to water mains, from parking lots to driveways to private roads. Even though easements are common, Ishikawa points out, many easement agreements are drafted in a manner that invites litigation. With that in mind, an entire chapter is devoted to drafting techniques, including checklists. The book also includes suggested model forms on disk, for easy use and adaptation.

    Ishikawa also explains how to recognize and avoid accidental or incidental easements that may subsequently come into existence, without express intention by the parties, through the doctrines of prescriptive right, implication, or necessity. Other chapters deal with such issues as administration of easements, allocation of the costs of maintenance and repair, amendment and termination of easements, and special problems that can arise with easements serving condominiums and planned unit developments.

    The 200-plus-page, soft-cover book, with forms disk, sells for $45, plus tax, shipping, and handling. Current book owners who subscribe to the Bar's automatic supplementation service were sent the revised edition at 10 percent off the regular price.
