CONTENT

Perhaps 75% of all properties are affected by easements, like rights of way and rights to light, rights that may enhance the value of the land they benefit but can diminish the value of the land across which those rights pass. The law needs to be modernised, but until it is we need to practice what has been called “ancient” law as best we can. In this video Paul Clark describes

  • what an easement is
  • how it is acquired
  • the differences between express and implied easements
  • the need for registration
  • the impact of the many cases on the extent of an easement and its character
  • recent developments in the law
