Hello. This is probably a right of way ("easement") benefitting the cottage. It means that although the cottage owner doesn't own the pathway, they have full legal rights over it, for access. It can't be blocked up or diverted without consent. Does this assist? WB
Does this wording NOT FOOT ONLY in the deeds mean that it can be used for vehicle access to the cottage,because the cottage needs total renovation,and this 6ft wide access is the only means of getting equipment and a vehicle to the cottage after renovation.
do you have the full relevant wording to hand? If so, can I have it please?
Hi, on the deeds dated 11,10,1957 the wording relating to the access and use of the right of way is (BUT ON FOOT ONLY), when my inlaws obtained the cottage on the 20,07 1960 the wording in the deeds for this right of way was changed to( BUT NOT FOOT ONLY) ,wording on deeds ,TOGETHER WITH. the rightfor the purchaser and his successors in title the owner or owners for the time being of the property hereby conveyed and all persons authorised by him or them at all times hereafter and for all purposes but not foot only to pass and repass through over and along the pathway forming part of the adjoining property to the east .
