Easements are always granted to the owners of the property and then they will run with the land for future owners unless words in the granting of the easement say otherwise. You need to have a copy of the original grant of easement to know for sure. If the easement was for ingress, egress and road purposes it was probably for one parcel of land. There is a possible issue here of overburdening the easement when 2 or more parcels use the same easement granted to one parcel. If you are concerned with this issue I suggest you meet with a good Real Estate Attorney and have copies of the easement deed and other documents. I am a Licensed Land Surveyor in California with 30+ years of experience (now only doing real estate as its much more fun and much less work).
