    Right of Access 9th Apr 18 at 10:03 PM
    If the owner of a property has right of access over a private road that has been granted by deed, would any subsequent owner of the property automatically get right of access or would they also need it granted by deed?

    It depends on the wording. It normally passes to a new owner.

    Basically yes.

    Think the wording "in perpetuity" is what needs to be down there and that equals = forever and ever amen stuff in effect.

    It's certainly something along the lines of making sure the "successor in title" gets that right passed onto them - from memory of what my own says to make it plain that it's my house that has that right and not just the first owner of my house - without hauling out my box of paperwork on this house to check the exact wording.

    "The land has the benefit of a right of way for all purposes over the private road leading from A to B"

    Presumably this wording as not specific to owner passes on?

    This would suggest that the right runs with the land, not a specific owner.

    It would satisfy me at an initial enquiry stage, but I'd still want to look at the whole title document and put this in context with a solicitor before purchase.
