A dream of Varsity


I was discussinf things qwith some university chums. One of them was Rob Argent. Argent was gone for a spell. Another boy was telling me that ARgent had never got his degree. Methinks one of my interlocutors was Vinny. In fact Vinny is the man whi has ballsed up and is a liar but he has a degree. There was a discussion of a priest called Snail. It was somewhere cool and people were wearing tweeds and stuuff. There were no ladies in the dicussun It may have bene in the Unin. I have been thinking about seeing Argennt over the next few days.

Read Goldberg v Edwards make notes on the relevant facts, decisions and reasoning, then answer the following questions;

Edwardds permitted Goldberg to access Goldberg’s annex throuugh Edwards’ house. Then the house was let too someone else who locked it and would not permit Goldberg to come through. It turned oout Goldberg had an easement.

section 62 with the conveyance turned the licence into an easement.


a.        Why did Goldberg ‘s claim for an easement under the rule in Wheeldon v Burrows falls?


b/    How did Mr Goldberg win the case?


c            What should the landlord have done in both Wright v Macadam and Goldberg v Edwards to prevent an easement arising on the grant of a second lease?


Activity 8.5. Page 123 Law of Property.


Read Wong v Beaumont Property Trust Lrd 1965 and make a not of the relevant facts, ratio decidendi and decision and reasons for the same.

Would the decision have been the same if an adeuate but more expensive ventilaiton systm could have been sistaleld whch did not pass thriugh the defendant’s premisies.


The is a 1965 case. Wong rented a premises to run a restaurant. His lease said he must not cause noisome smells or disquiet the neighbours.  He wanted to use a certain place for ventilaiton. This was needed to comply with the temrs of the lease. Lord Denning said this was an easement of necessity. It must be the only way he can o this rather than a cheap or convenient way.

No, the deiicison would not have been the same if there had been an alternative even if that were more cosrly or cumbesome.

Activity 8..4. Page 120. Law of Property.


Which of the following could be easements and why?

a.   A right to park on neighbouring land whenever it is convenient for both parties.

This can be an easement. It does not deprive the servient tenement of all usefulness. It is a bit vague


b.   A right to park on neighbouring  land every day from 9 am till 10 pm

Yes, this is an easement. It is specific. It is not so extensive as to take away the owner’s rights


c.   Permission to use a garden shared with ten other houses

Yes, this is like Re Ellenbrough Park. It can be a shared easement.


d. Permission to use a garden as the only user

No, because this means the owner cannot use it. That is exclusive occupation


e.   Access to the public highway across a strip of land owned privately ; the previous ownr of the land had always done

Yes, this can be an easement of necessity. It may be needful for the reasonable enjoyment of the land. It should be express or implied. It may be a lost modern grant.


f.   Access by car   from a house’s drive to the public highway

Yes, this is a common easement.


g. Ventilation for a basement flat; it could be provided in another way, but that would be much  more expensive.

That can be an easement but is not of necessity. Necessity must be real. It coould be an implied or express easement.

Read Moncrieff v Jamieson 2007. From this your and your reading so far, answer the following question. If a person who owns a garage but no car grants his neighbour the right to park his car in the garage =, can such a right exist as an easement?


Scots law. House of Lords.

A man had a right to drive out through the service of another. He was then given the right to park his car as well.

It was not necessary to show that all rights that were acquired had been necessary in 1973. It only needed to be shown that such rights were contemplated in 1973.  This was about what te owner of the doinant tenement might want for the reasonable anjoment of his land..

The right to park was ancillary to the main right – access to the road. Parking was contemplayed in 1973 so this right was acquired.

Easements must be exercised civiliter – that means not so extensive that they effectively deprive the owner of te servient tenement of reasonable use of his land.

Easement rights of parking in English law.


Yes, it can exist as an easement. It needs to have DADS. That is Re Ellenborigh Park 1954 criteria. There is a dominant and a servient tenement; the dominant accommodates the servient; it is here capable of being yhe subject matter oof a grant; there is a capablle grantor an grantee.
