Bill Chandler – Easements: more exciting than they sound

Many commercial and domestic properties rely for their use and enjoyment on rights of way, rights of light and other rights over neighbouring land, or are themselves subject to such rights. Many of these rights are not formally documented, but have arisen by implication or by long use. After a brief refresher on the basic characteristics of easements, we explore the implications for landowners of several significant recent cases that highlight:

  • the diverse ways in which easements can arise
  • the breadth of rights that can qualify as easements
  • the particular risk of new rights of way arising over forecourts, car parks and other unbuilt-upon areas

Regulatory team – DANGER! Deep (pocket) excavations: the pitfalls of the new H&S sentencing guidelines

Love it or hate it, nobody involved in the property and construction sector can afford to ignore health and safety legislation. Hill Dickinson’s regulatory team explains the tough new sentencing guidelines that apply from February 2016 for offences involving health and safety, corporate manslaughter, food safety and hygiene.

Property litigation team – Case law kaleidoscope

The property litigation team will review the decisions in key property cases over the last 12 months, essential listening for all in the property sector.
