Thanks, that's perfect. Here is a summary of the burdens: 1. The centre of any stream, ditch, wall, fence, hedge etc comprises the boundary. 2. Where the boundary adjoins property owned by a third party the boundary is the edge of the ground being disponed. 3. The private roads on the estate can be used and are to be maintained by the users if there is no provision elsewhere for their maintenance. 4. You have the right to cut peat in the Freswick mosses. 5. You can use the existing water supplies and sewage systems with access for maintenance and repair. Similarly there is reserved to the Diponer and his successor rights of drainage and rights of access to the soakaway and drainage on this land. Those appear to be the main issues. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
They are entirely standard for rural property and mainly create mutual rights and obligations for use and access for maintenance of drains and sewage.
I'm not sure what you mean by a land appraisal. Typically searches are carried out in the Registrs of Scotland including the Register of Inhibitions and Adjudications. A property Enquiry Report is also carried out and in some districts, coal authority report. Your solicitor will get all of these from the seller's solicitor as part of the transaction. You should engage a solicitor of your choice. JustAnswer experts aren't permitted to take on cases privately.
