2017 Guide to Private Rights of Way

2 CPD Hours = £36

Competency/Learning Objective - Legal knowledge and skills

Private rights of way continue to give rise to considerable arguments between neighbours and (to the frustration of the judiciary) costly and time-consuming litigation. This course examines the governing principles in relation to express and implied rights. Links to the source materials are provided. 

By the end of the course you will be able to advise authoritatively as to:

  • how to interpret express rights of way

  • when a right of way might be implied;

  • how a right of way can be acquired by prescription (and what steps can be taken by a landowner to prevent this from happening)
  • problems which can arise out of the use of a right of way, eg excessive user, parking, erection of gates, disrepair

  • when and how a right of way can come to an end
