How Do You Deal with Right of Way Property Disputes?

Right of way disputes may be a common issue for property owners but that does not mean they are always simple to resolve. The most common cause of a right of way dispute comes from an individual assuming that an area of land belonging to someone else which they were using for access either belonged to them or was public property.

Often, right of way disputes can cause difficult issues if an individual has been using an area of land for some time before a landlord opts to reassert his rights over it. This is a complicated issue and therefore requires technical knowledge and experienced public law solicitors in order to come to the right conclusion for all parties involved.

Businesses can also suffer in a big way from right of way disputes. For example, it may be stopping customers get to your premises and therefore having a detrimental impact on the success of your financial turnover. Regardless of whether it is an organisation or individual experiencing a right of way disagreement, it is vital that this is solved as soon as possible to minimise the distress caused to both parties.

It is far more cost and time effective to avoid having to go through the court systems during a right of way property dispute. Instead, an agreement or easement can usually be met without the need to go through the courts.

An easement allows for someone to enter/use someone else’s land for a specified purpose. This compromise of sorts essentially allows someone to enter a property without having any ownership of it. An easement can be formed in multiple different ways.

A necessity can be granted in which an area of land has a right of way usage for the public. This plot of land will have right of way over a path, track or road leading to it only if this is the only means of access between that area and the public highway. When an individual is evidenced to be carrying out a trespassing act repeatedly without the landowner’s permission for a period of at least twenty years then a prescription is often adjudged.

As is usually the best form of solution, an express grant is achieved where both parties are able to agree over a Deed of Grant. This grant can be achieved with the legal help of public law solicitors and will ultimately state the terms of the easement.
