This practical guide is intended for practitioners seeking to navigate disputes involving easements and restrictive covenants.

In the context of easements, this book addresses the creation of easements, liability, extinguishment of easements and remedies, with a particular focus on the issues that are most likely to be encountered in practice. Further, it also explores common freehold covenants, how these can be enforced, modified or discharged and the remedies available.

The guide provides insight into how the courts are likely to resolve such disputes and important points on evidence and procedure which will inform case preparation.
