Event Details

Easements can be a benefit or a burden for landowners literally as well as legally, so Conveyancers need to know how to prove or  challenge the existence of an easement. 

The recent decision from the Upper Tribunal in the case of Hughes v Benefice of Frampton on Severn showing the current judicial thinking on this area of law is the subject of the next webinar from Stewart Title.

Stephen Smith, Stewart Title’s UK Country Manager, says

“We are very lucky that Tim Calland of Maitland Chambers who was instructed in the case will join our regular property expert Ian Quayle to discuss the judgement and the lessons for property owners and their lawyers in our next FREE CPD Webinar on Wednesday 13 October at 11am.

The webinar will look at –

  • The three ways prescriptive easements can be created
  • Critical issues with regard to use and whether occasional use will suffice
  • The correct approach to protect prescriptive easements
  • Land Registration issues arising in connection with contested applications to protect prescriptive easements, registration, notices or overriding status
  • The perils of contested applications at First Tier Tribunal
  • The benefits of defective title insurance
  • Using the recent Upper Tribunal decision of Hughes an overview of seisin, illegality of use and prescription and some other interesting topics will be examined

In addition to looking at the law, says Smith “ Tim and Ian will be discussing the practical steps to take before making an application to the First Tier Tribunal so it will be helpful to litigators as well as Conveyancers. Tim’s inside knowledge of the case and Ian’s insight into the practical effects of easements makes this an unmissable event!”
