Residential Property

Easements, covenants & boundaries

Easements, covenants & boundaries

Land ownership comes with rights and responsibilities. Some seem obvious: the right to reach one’s front door via a pavement; the responsibility to avoid your trees causing harm or damage to your neighbours or their property.

Some are less so: the right to ride a horse or bicycle down a certain track, but not a tractor or car; the responsibility to build and repair a boundary fence or a shared drain. Covenants stretching back over a century may impose legal restrictions on your use of your own land; conversely, your land may have the benefit of them, which you may be able to enforce, or release for a substantial consideration. Boundary disputes are not always based on emotional antagonism: often the title deeds for the properties are unclear, or are plainly inconsistent, so each reasonably believes they are the injured party.

Where settlement of such cases proves impracticable, we will represent you before the Land Registry Adjudicator. These areas of law are highly complex and require the technical expertise which we have in such areas.
