From time to time, it happens that you may need to register an easement on someone else’s property.
For example –
- You might have your services (water, sewerage, electricity, telecommunication etc.) running through a neighbouring property to get to your property; or
- You might not be able to access the road unless you travel over a neighbouring property.
Under Queensland legislation, a person is able to apply to Court to obtain an order granting an easement over property, subject to some conditions being met.
If you need an easement, have an easement and you need to know your rights, or not sure whether there is a registered or unregistered easement affecting you, then we recommend that you contact our office to discuss this.
