wingrovebuyer : Hello. The short answer is no - the easement benefits one parcel of the land and burdens the other, both of which parcels are owned differently, albeit one owner is the same. The benefitting land and you as a joint owners do not lose thecbenefit of the covenant.
wingrovebuyer : Sorry, easement, not covenant!
