Why are Easement and Covenant Removal Important?

Easements and covenants are legal agreements that restrict the use of land. Easements provide the right to a third party to use a part of your property for a specific purpose, while covenants impose restrictions on how the land can be used. Although they can be useful in some circumstances, they can also limit the value and use of your property. Therefore, many property owners choose to remove them to enhance the value and flexibility of their land.

Restriction Removal Made Easy

If you’re a real estate owner or land owner planning to buy land, you need to completely understand your rights, choices, and responsibilities that are subjected to a restrictive covenant.

Restrictive covenants are frequently linked to preserving standards for the advantage of nearby residents, such as defining the permitted colour scheme or window design for development.

Additionally, a restrictive covenant on freehold land refers to an agreement made in a deed between two landowners to limit one another’s use of their respective properties. This might entail limiting the use of the land to non-commercial activities and possibly regulating building heights.

Frequently Ask Questions

An easement is a right held by someone to use land belonging to someone else for a specific purpose.

In general, there are a number of ways that an easement can be removed, including:-

  • By Agreement
  • By Abandonment
  • By alterations made to the dominant tenement
  • By merger/consolidation
  • By Statute

By far the most common and practical way of varying/removing an easement is by removal under Section 23 of the Subdivision Act 1988 by a certified plan in accordance with a planning scheme or planning permit under the Planning & Environment Act 1987.

The typical timing for a complete Variation/Removal of Easement by Statute method on the assumption of a straight forward application is between 3 – 6 months inclusive of formal registration at the Title’s Office.
