Answers to your questions

Will an easement affect the property value?

An easement can have a range of impacts on property value, from minimal to significant, depending on its size and restrictions. Before making any decisions, consult with us at Arver Law. We can evaluate how an easement might affect your property's value and provide strategies to manage or lessen its impact.

Who is responsible for maintaining an easement?

Maintenance of an easement typically falls to the user for any damage caused by their use, but the property owner also has a responsibility for general upkeep. If you're unsure about who's responsible for what, we can clarify these duties for you and assist in resolving any disputes.

How do I get an easement enforced in NSW?

If the easement terms are not being respected, enforcement can be sought through negotiation or court action. We’ll help by ensuring that the terms of your easement are enforced, protecting your property and your rights.

How can I get an easement removed?

To remove an easement, you typically need consent from the easement holder or to demonstrate that the easement is no longer relevant or being used. It's a process that requires careful handling and official documentation. At Arver Law, we can provide expert advice and support you through the legal steps to clear your property title.

Can I make variations to an Easement on a property in NSW?

Yes, variations to an easement are possible, but they require consensus from all involved parties and the official recording of these changes. We’ll manage the negotiations and legal documentation, making the process seamless for you.

How do I find an easement on a property that I’m interested in?

Finding easements involves a bit of detective work, like conducting a title search, consulting with your local council, or obtaining a surveyor's report. These steps are crucial before you commit to buying a property. At Arver Law, we can perform these searches for you, ensuring that you're fully informed about any easements that could affect your property plans.

What are some examples of easements I should be aware of?

Some examples of the different types of easements may include:

  • Right of Way, which allows passage across your land; 
  • Utility Easements for essential services like electricity and water; 
  • Cross-easements, where neighbouring properties need to use each other’s land for the same purpose
  • Private Easements, one-way relationship where only the easement holder has the right to use the land, and the property owner (servient tenement) must allow it; and 
  • Prescriptive Easements, which are rights earned through long-term use. We can guide you through these types and their implications for your property.

What exactly is an Easement on a property or land?

An easement is like a legal 'hall pass' that allows someone else to use a part of your property for a specific purpose, such as a walkway or a space for utility lines. It's a set of rights that doesn't amount to ownership but does come with its own set of rules for both you and the easement holder.
