If you have to pass over someone else property to get to the property you're appraising, what kind of lot would that be called?

The dominant tenement if there is an easement. The other lot would be the servient tenement.

If there is no easement it might be called a lot with a problem.:)

Are you appraising such a property? If yes, for what use?

Again, if "yes" to my first question, you need to obtain some information regarding the legal ingress/egress for the property.

My husband is taking the Appraiser's exam and one of the questions on the test is dealing with that situation.

D Lana .. be very cautious .. an appraisal of a land locked parcel can be a very complex assignment. The laws of your state and local area will be very important to understand when completing this assignment as well as how your market reacts to such properties.

I wish you well.

And he's calling you from the testing facility to get him the answer? Tell him to do his own darn research. :rof:

The question, as I read it, seems to be, "what would you call the lot you have to pass over?" If that is the case, I believe servient tenement is the correct answer. Then again, it's all in the wording of the question...

A lot you're trespassing on. Often accompanied by a load of birdshot by the irate property owner. At least in Texas. :D
