Easements, covenants and boundaries

When it comes to property, some rights and responsibilities are obvious: yes, you have the right for a clear path from the pavement to your front door. And you also have the responsibility to stop your trees causing damage to your neighbour’s property.

Some have more nuance. You might be able to ride a bike down a track, but not drive a car down it. Who repairs a boundary fence or clears a shared drain? You might be restricted by covenants stretching back over a century – or you might benefit from them, which includes being able to enforce them or gain value from releasing them.

There’s not always a clear injured party in a boundary dispute either; title deeds are often unclear or inconsistent. That might mean coming before the Land Registry adjudicator, where we can represent you with all the weight of our considerable technical expertise in a very complex area of law.
