Easements

Easements come in a variety of different forms, whether it is a right of way for the passage of vehicles and services, a drainage easement for stormwater disposal, an overland flow path, bushfire emergency exist or easements for public authority infrastructure such as electricity lines and substations. SWS Lawyers are well versed in easements – acting on behalf of both benefitted and burdened parties, public authorities or impacted landowners.

Expertise

SWS Lawyers regularly advise clients on matters involving easements. We act on behalf of landowners, developers, and public authorities on all types of matters relating to easements. In particular, we can:

  • advise on and negotiate the imposition of a new easement, by effectively communicating your request to the burdened landowner, drafting the deed granting easement and preparing the section 88B instrument;
  • advise on the impacts of an easement on your land, including existing easements or proposed easements;
  • negotiate compensation for a proposed easement;
  • advise on intensification or misuse of an easement;
  • advise and act on extinguishment of an easement;
  • resolve easement disputes, including advising on the rights and obligations a landowner burdened or benefitted by an easement has;
  • advise on and appear in Section 88K Proceedings (in both the Land and Environment Court and the Supreme Court).

Their approach is always professional and delivered at a standard comparable to a capital city law firm. It is the clear strategic direction that has always impressed me about the SWS team.
