MacMeekin v. Low Income Hous. Inst., Inc

In MacMeekin v. Low Income Hous. Inst., Inc., 111 Wn. App. 188, 45 P.3d 570 (Wash. Ct. App. 2002), an action to quiet title to an easement, the Court of Appeals of Washington was confronted with the issue of whether a court had the power to relocate an existing easement by prescription without the permission of the owner of the dominant estate. After reviewing cases from other jurisdictions, the court decided: "Washington adheres to the traditional rule that easements, however created, are property rights, and as such are not subject to relocation absent the consent of both parties." MacMeekin, 45 P.3d at 579 .
