Easements & Covenants
When considering a purchase of land, you should undertake a search of the title. This will disclose whether there are any easements or covenants that may prevent you from using the land the way you want. An easement is a passageway that allows access to certain parties through your land. A common example of an easement is a sewerage line. A covenant on the other hand is a limitation on the land. This limitation may involve a restriction on the height of the building on the land or erection of fencing.
