Easement problems are amongst the most difficult legal issues to resolve. The relevant law can be complicated and arcane – and often difficult to apply with any degree of certainty. Recent decisions from the Courts have added to that uncertainty. This webinar will consider the implications for practice.
After this session viewers should have an understanding of some of the practical aspects arising from recent decisions concerning easements including:
- The potential significance of the “Registration Gap”
- Whether an easement can be implied by imposing a positive covenant
- Can abandonment of an easement be easily inferred
- Can a car parking easement exist
