Reciprocal Negative Easement


A restriction typically arising in subdivision development that enables its holder to prevent an otherwise permissible use of another’s land, created when the owner of related lots conveys portions of his land with restrictions intended to benefit all of the lots as a whole. This is typically done in the context of developing multiple similar lots in a subdivision with a common plan of development, in which the developer may impose implied restrictions on the properties even if the restrictive covenant is not explicitly recorded in the chain of title. Also known as an implied restrictive negative easement or implied reciprocal negative easement.
