Can recreational rights exist as legal easements, running with the land? Aisha Goulbourne reviews a High Court decision that has recently.

The argument was whether this was a right capable of running with the land, benefitting and binding successors in title. This demonstrates that, where certain criteria are met, a right over land really can exist when an assumption may be that the use is personal to individuals.
This decision provides a welcome authority, as there was previously no English or Scottish authority on whether the right to use a golf course, swimming pool or tennis court is capable of being an easement. So, another new easement is recognised by the courts. This is a very significant outcome for those owning and advising on timeshare developments and anyone involved in the holiday, leisure and sports sectors.
Ultimately it demonstrates that use of leisure facilities can amount to binding property rights and are not just personal contractual rights. The case also shows that property law can alter and adapt to meet the needs of modern society. This edition marks the 10th anniversary of this publication. Looking back at the first edition, the topics being discussed in spring included a human rights challenge to the law on adverse possession, a review of the major changes to lease renewals introduced in and the imminent introduction of the ill-fated Home Information Pack.

David Chinn Head of Business Services david. Disputes, litigation, injunctions, dispute resolution, adjudication, arbitration and mediation are among her specialisms. Alan Pugh, head of construction, said: The construction sector continues to be extremely buoyant following a strong performance during the past 12 months and I see no reason why this momentum will not continue. Hill Dickinson is delighted to welcome legal director Tricia Morrison to the growing Manchester and Liverpool-based construction team.
Construction focus Welcome aboard!
No denying the dispute The parties to construction contracts were given a right in law to quick dispute decisions by adjudication back in In AMD, it was found by the court that it was wrong in principle and that it was misconceived to suggest that a dispute had not arisen until every last part of every element of a claim had been provided. Whether the absence of that further information during the course of the adjudication will in practical terms stop the claimant being successful in proving its claim will be a question for the adjudicator.
The slice approach means that the relevant percentage only applies to that part of the consideration that falls within each band, rather than the highest rate applying to the whole price. This will remove the traditional problem where a modest increase in price could lead to a significant increase in tax, e. The new rates are as follows: Where contracts were exchanged before that date, the purchaser can choose whether to apply the new rules or the old rules.
Purchases up to that price will attract less SDLT, while purchases above that price will pay more. SDLT on leases The good news: This is discussed in more detail in the box below. Following an initial five-year lifespan, BPRA was extended for a further five years frombut the budget confirmed that there will be no further extension when the current scheme expires in A HM Treasury consultation published on 28 December provided more detail on how this would work in practice, with the final details confirmed in the budget on 16 March Here are the 10 things you need to know about the new SDLT surcharge: If, following the purchase, an individual owns only one residential property, they will pay SDLT at the usual rates.
That is the case whether they are buying the property to live in or to rent out. So, the following transactions will not attract the surcharge: A purchase by a first-time buyer of their first residential property; b.
A typical conveyancing transaction, where a homeowner sells their only residential property and buys another one; c. The property is subject to a lease which has more than 21 years left to run at the date of purchase; or c. To decide how many residential properties the individual owns following the purchase: Properties subject to a lease which has more than 21 years left to run at the date of the latest purchase are excluded; c.
Properties which the individual owns whether solely or in joint names are included; d. Properties in which the individual has a beneficial interest under a trust will usually be included depending on the type of trust ; e.
Properties bought as furnished holiday lets are included; g. Caravans, mobile homes and houseboats are excluded. They can however claim a refund if their previous main residence is sold within the following three years a longer period than the 18 months proposed in the consultation ; b. If a person buys a new main residence but keeps their old one perhaps to rent outthen they have not replaced their main residence and must pay the surcharge on their purchase; d.
Unlike the position with Capital Gains Tax, it will not be open to the person to elect which property is their main residence. Where the surcharge applies, SDLT will be charged at the following higher rates: The implications of this include: Where residential property is purchased by joint purchasers, the following rules will apply unless a main residence is being replaced: Married couples and civil partners are treated as one unit, so the surcharge will apply on a joint purchase where either party owns other residential property.

Similarly, the surcharge cannot be avoided by holding one property in one name and acquiring another property in the name of the other; b. In most other cases, if any of the joint purchasers owns two or more residential properties following the purchase then the whole purchase price is subject to the surcharge, even if the other joint purchasers do not own any other residential property.
