Highlight

Grants of interests in real property are interpreted in like manner with contracts in general.
The principal difference between an easement and a license is that a license is revocable at will.
If extrinsic evidence is conclusive and undisputed, the determination of the meaning of a contract is a function for the court to resolve as a matter of law.
