The term for an easement in French property law is a servititude.

A ‘servititude’ gives, for example, the right for one French property owner to access his property by crossing the property of another owner.

This type of servititude typically is given to a property owner that without the servititude (easement) he would have no access to his property.

It is important that servititudes are noted on the title of the property so current and future owners of the affected properties know their rights.

Make sure you contact your English speaking French notary to help you understand the legal implication of any servititude (easement) that exists on a property you are interested in buying.
