CONT

An easement is an incorporeal hereditament and is a privilege without a profit. Thus when A, the owner of a piece of land, has the right of compelling B, the owner of an adjoining piece of land, either to refrain from doing something on his (B's) land; or to allow A to do something on his (B's) land, then A is said to have an easement over B's land: A is called the dominant owner, and his land the dominant tenement; B is called the servient tenant, and his land the servient tenement. (Jowitt's, 2nd ed., 1977, p. 675).
