Attorney(s) appearing for the Case
Lindsey M. Tenberg, P.A., and Lindsey M. Tenberg (Lighthouse Point), for appellant Celia Morris; Horan, Wallace & Higgins, LLP, and David Paul Horan , for appellants Michael Barnes, et al.
Franklin D. Greenman, P.A., and Franklin D. Greenman , for appellee.
Before SUAREZ, FERNANDEZ and SCALES, JJ.
We agree with the trial court that, rather than their possessing a non-exclusive easement that would survive partition, the ten owners of the Dolphin Estates residential lots each own an undivided 1/49th interest in the property known as the Beach Area and the Access Canal (the "Property"). Similarly, rather than his holding an easement1 in the Property, Omar Garcia, as tenant in common with the Dolphin Estates homeowners, owns the remaining 39/49th undivided interest. While this odd arrangement might not have reflected the grantors' intent, nevertheless it is the arrangement reflected by the respective deeds granting the parties their interests in the Property.
Not final until disposition of timely filed motion for rehearing.
