In an easement appurtenant or easement in gross, the servient estate is the parcel of land that provides the benefits of the easement.


Example #1:  There is an easement on Parcel A that allows the owner of Parcel B to cross Parcel A for purpose of ingress and egress.  Parcel B is the dominant estate since it receives the benefits.


Parcel A is the servient estate since it provides the benefits.


Example #2:  Georgia Power has an easement on Parcel A.  Parcel A is the servient estate because it provides the benefits.  There is no dominant estate.
