Easements

Background

An easement is the right to use the real property of another for a specific purpose. The Board of Regents (BOR) uses the easement instrument to permit use of University of Wisconsin land by another party. Per Regent Policy 13-2,  the board authorized BOR officers, by practice the Vice President of Administration, to sign easements on its behalf for any properties within campus boundaries.

Process

To effect an easement institutions should prepare, assemble, and submit to CPB the following documents:

  • A Certified Survey Map (CSM) and a metes and bounds description of the easement area.
  • A property map indicating BOR ownership Pertinent correspondence and other information
  • Original of the proposed easement document
  • If applicable, notice of §6(f) LAWCON (Land and Water Conservation Fund Act ) conflict
  • [Agency Request] (for easements requiring BOR approval)

UWSA CPB and legal counsel will review the documents to verify that the description is correct, and the easement conditions are in the best interests of the regents Using the [Agency Request], UWSA CPB will obtain necessary BOR approval
