Easement by Prescription

An easement on a property based on use resulting in "that's how we've been doing it".  In other words, if one property owner has been using part of another property for a specific use for a lengthy time (determined by the area the property is in) and both owners are aware of it and there has been no request for discontinuance, then an easement may be granted based on that allowance of use.
