Rights of way, parking, driveways and verges

This course has two objectives: (i) to deal with some common problems that frequently arise and (ii) to update delegates on recent developments in this area of the law. In particular it covers the situation where a land owner wants to develop a site, eg replacing one house with a number of houses, and thus wants to increase the use of the right of way. Can he do it?

Topics covered include:
  • Changing the purpose for which the right of way is used.
  • Increasing the use of the right of way
  • Repair
  • Parking rights - can they exist as easements? If so, when?
  • Getting over verges
  • Abandoning the right of way
  • Relationship with adverse possession
  • Easement or licence?
  • Implied easements - s62
  • Prescription
  • Obstruction of the right of way
  • Easements and the Land Registration Act 2002.
The course is suitable for property lawyers and litigators.
