Quick Reference

N.

The cessation or cancellation of some right or interest. For example, an easement is extinguished if the dominant and servient tenements come into the same ownership. Mere non-user of an easement, however, will not cause it to be extinguished unless an intention to abandon it can be shown (Benn v Hardinge (1992) 66 P & CR 246).

Subjects: Law.
