What does the term "Land Locked" mean?  What is condemnation?   What is an easement?  What does encroachemt mean?

Land locked refers to a parcel of land surrounded entirely by privately owned land, with no access to a public right of way  (road).  Condemnation for a limited access highway is a major cause of such parels.

Condemnation refers to the taking of private property for public use.  Consent of the owner is not required but fair compensation must be paid. This is also called eminent domain which is a governmental right to acquire private property for public use through condemnation and just compensation.

Easement--This refers to a right created by grant, reservation, agreement, prescription, or necessary  implication, which one has in the land of another. It is either for the benefit of the land (appurtanent), such as right to cross to cross A to get to B, or in gross such as a public utility easement.  An easement if necessity  is an easement created by a court when it is determined that said easement is absolutely necessary for the use and enjoyment of the land.  This is commonly given to landlocked parcels.

Encroachment refers to construction on to the property of another, as of a wall, fence, building, etc.
