Quick Reference


Attached or annexed to land and enhancing the land or its use. An easement must be appurtenant to a dominant tenement but a profit à prendre need not. Thus a right of way over land in Yorkshire granted to a Sussex landowner does not benefit his Sussex property and is not an easement, but a right to shoot game over the Yorkshire land could give a man in Sussex (whether landowner or not) a valid profit à prendre.

Subjects: Law.
