There are some terms that can be confusing when you do not know exactly what to expect. When you say covenant, this is known to be some sort of promise that has been made by a person or a group of people towards something or someone.

For example, the person may say that he would participate in an activity. This is the covenant of the person that will be done at the right time. An easement, on the other hand, is different. This means that a person has the right to use a piece of land or property without owning it. Sometimes, an easement is also used when a person is interested in a piece of property because he would like to develop it, or he has plans for it.

Easement and Covenant are terms that will be relevant to property owners. Covenant can be seen as a binding contract, binding a person to the land. An easement gives landowners certain rights to the property. It allows them to do anything they want to the property.

The easement also allows a landowner the right to prevent another person from making any changes to the property. This is seen as a right, while a covenant is regarded as a promise.

Another way to differentiate between the two is that a covenant is looked at as the use of the land, while easement interests in the property.
