Hi, I need to plot the location of all easements on my site plan for a building permit.  We have several and I'm trying to figure out if this easement description is on the east property line or west property line. 

 

Reserving therefrom an easement for road and public utilities over, under, along and across the Easterly 30 feet thereof, the Westerly line of said Easterly 30 feet being measured at right angles and radially to the Easterly line thereof".

Any help or insight on this is greatly appreciated.

@brad-ott Thank you!!  I was initially thinking west until I read it again and then it seemed like east.

Easterly westerly northerly southerly are all vague uses of cardinal directions that could be anything in each quadrant.  Im no surveyor yet, but it sound like you might be well off hiring one or if you cant afford that, approach your local chapter of the survey board where you live to see if they do any ProBono work.

And like Radar said, a picture isworht a thousand words, adjacent deeds easements too

Thanks for everyone's help with this.  I appreciate your replies, suggestions and questions.

This parcel map shows our 20.2 acre property #32.  Yellow highlights show where the title company plotted and noted the easements.  There is one along the west property line and one along the east.  

Another one I'm trying to figure out ... does this 8 foot easement start at the northeast corner of Sect. 7 and then only extend for 363 feet onto our property along the east property line?  

 "the Northerly 363 feet of a strip of land 8 feet wide lying Westerly of and adjoining the Easterly line of the Northeast Quarter of the Northeast Quarter, Section 7, said Township 13 South, Range 1 West.

Looks like the east line to me, too; but I could be wrong.

I've never been wrong before, but there's always a first time...

I hope everyone has a great week! I know I will.

@dougie Thanks.  I'm going with the East line.  We have one on each side, but I have note the dates, document numbers, and label all of them.  I appreciate your help and everyone's input!

One time, I thought I was wrong - but I was mistaken.

I strongly detest "simple" descriptions that achieve nothing but confusing everyone.  In my opinion, routes as shown are neither on the eastern boundary or the southern boundary of the tract.  They deserve an indisputable description.
