stacey wuyts - well, it could be in the backyard, driveway or perhaps anywhere in the property.
Most common are utility easements ... and as Ryan Huggins - Thousand Oaks, CA mentioned - prescriptive easements.

Most commonly are the easements given to utility companies. The other one is usage easement which can turn into a headache. I know if from personal experience.
perfect question for the broker
Run into encroachments, easements a lot over the years. Right of way access easement most common, water rights to a shared well, right to come back and intern ashes in the family burial blot up back on a farm sale. Have shared leach fields on lake camps but discourage those if setting up two lake lot sales and costs a little more for separate ones but less neighbor sparks fly that way when one is overusing the facilities. Shared driveways are a bone of contention because some people just fight, don't park right or respect rules stacey wuyts . Power line extensions across the land of another that are in place but not exercised can be hard for property owners if never disclosed or the deed language was discussed but forgotten when the talk about excepted and reserved came up and went by at the real estate closing.
Too many to list.
There are ingress and egress easements, utility easements and right of way easements are most used in my area.
There are several different types of easements. They come up in my area, and usually show up on the title work. Mainly, though, the owners know about them and they are visible.
Utilities are one. Easements over one property to another is common here, Eaements for the TVA are also popular and drainage and septic. Septic is one we run into once in a while. It usually happens when a person does not have enough room for a septic and the good neighbor allows it to be leach over to his. I had this situation before when I listed a home.
There are many and even between states there may be more
The book answer is easement in gross (e.g. public utility line), easement appurtenant (e.g. drive over your neighbor's property to reach your property) and prescriptive easement (e.g. using someone's property without their permission).
I'd say the questions has been answered after reading the comments.
There are several, ingress, egress, utility, flood plain, septic, railroad, open space, to name a few.
Others have answered.
It depends on the jurisdiction.
Back when I was taking licensing classes this was fresh in my memory, now it would involve looking it up.
The two most common categories are public (utility) and private (most common ingress and egress).
It varies, we had utility easements on our property in Los Angeles. A
easements are created for a variety of reasons.... for someone of something to get from one point to another when not owning that piece of land.... I've also seen an easement created on an abutting property to enable a piece of land to qualify for s.f. needed for building!!!
Utility easements are the most common, but there are shared driveways, easements for shared wells, access easements among others.
Most often for utilities, water, sewer, electric and sometimes even shared drive ways. It is what is recorded
Whatever is recorded. Many of the easements are for utilities, drainage or common access.
