Rights of way & easements
Third parties can acquire rights over land that they do not own either through legal documentation or, on occasions, by usage over a period of time. Our team helps developers to consider the impact – positive or negative – that such rights will have on their scheme.
We encourage early involvement so that our team can uncover rights of way issues that could cause delays and highlight any easements over adjoining land that may facilitate construction work or increase the footprint, and therefore the potential profitability, of the scheme.
Rights of way can be closely linked with boundary determination and, in some cases, boundary disputes. Where these occur, we offer strategic advice and help clients through the process of regulations.
Clarification of rights of way and easements can be costly if not tackled at the scheme’s outset. Contact us to find out how to minimise those costs and maximise your profitability.
