Access over one person's property to reach another person's

Customer Question

Access over one person's property to reach another person's property. The Land Registry Document words are: "The Second Party hereby grants to the First Party their successors in title the owners and occupiers for the time being of the First Property the right to pass and repass over the Second Property with or without vehicles for the purposes of access to and egress from the First Property at all times and for all purposes in connection with the First Party's enjoyment of the same". Does this mean the First Party ONLY has this right of access, or does anyone with a legitimate reason for accessing the First Property (such as an employee or tradesman) have this right of access?

Hi,The covenant only refers to owners, occupiers and successors in title. If it does not refer to contractors and workmen, it can be argued that they would not have right of access.However, one would assume that if that is the only access, it would be prudent to assume access would also be granted to workmen and contractors working at the property. But this is just an assumption.I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.kind regards
