An internet site states :
''The right to take turf for fuel in a house does not attach to the lands but attaches to the dwellinghouse situate on the lands: it cannot be apportioned or severed from the dwellinghouse.
If, however, the dwellinghouse is replaced by another dwellinghouse on the same lands in continuance of the older dwellinghouse the right of turbary automatically attaches to the new dwellinghouse.
On a transfer of part of lands on which there is an attached right of turbary the right will be registered on the title of the part on which the dwellinghouse is situate and will not be registered of the part that is severed from the old dwellinghouse. It is important to note that the extent of the right is limited to the fuel requirements of the dweelinghouse it is not a right to cut and sell turf.
Also that the person with the right does not acquire any other right in the land from which the turf is being taken.
There was another similiar right which was also often vested by the Irish Land Commission and this was the right to take bog mould from a bog for manure. Unlike the right to take turf this right can be apportioned on a transfer of part of land."
There is similar information in other sites. The turbary right I have is of the type described above. So does it require the agreement of the owner of the land on which the right is?
