The Intersection between Subdivision Law and Easements

Sydney presented a CPD seminar titled “The intersection between subdivision law and easements” on 8 June as part of the Legalwise Subdivision Law Intensive series.

The presentation explored the ways in which subdivision law and easements frequently interact for the property practitioner, including:

  • When by-laws may be more or less appropriate than easements for the purpose of conferring rights over land
  • How courts assess whether an easement purports to give exclusive possession, and is therefore invalid
  • How representations made to the Owners Corporation can give rise to an easement by estoppel
  • How to best navigate constructional disputes around an easement
