Access to neighbouring land
The Access to Neighbouring Land Act 1992 grants important rights to assist with access on neighbouring land to enable the repair and maintenance of buildings and land. There are limitations in its practical application, as the Act is for works of basic preservation only and not all circumstances where access may be desirable. In some cases the Act will not be applicable and access may be via agreement only.
