Titles in the Core Text series take the reader straight to the heart of the subject, providing focused, concise, and reliable guides for students at all levels. This chapter focuses on two of the most important categories of entitlement that may be acquired over other people's land: easements and profits à prendre. Each of these rights comprises a species of proprietary entitlement, with the usual consequence in English law that the rights in question have the capacity to bind third parties. But, for precisely this reason, the law draws fairly stringent definitional boundaries around the kinds of incorporeal right that enjoy this potential of third-party impact. The discussions cover: the defining characteristics of easements and profits; the modes of creation and termination of easements and profits; and the transmission of the benefit and burden of easements and profits.
