Highlight

The primary purpose in interpreting a deed is to ascertain and effectuate the grantor's intent. When a deed is unambiguous, the parties' intent is determined from the instrument itself.
A deed that conveys a "right" or "right of way" generally indicates an intent to convey an easement. When the phrase "right of way" is included in the granting clause limiting the estate conveyed or specifying the purpose of the grant, the use of the language supports finding an easement was conveyed.
