Statutory Declarations

Statutory Declarations


Protect your land from new public rights of way, rights of way across farmland can be a headache for landowners and farmers, so stopping the creation of new rights of way is an important consideration.

If members of the public have been using a specific route for either walking the dog, a shortcut to the shops or just for general enjoyment and they have used it for a long enough period - usually 20 years and more - they can apply to have the route designated as a public right of way.

The use must be uninterrupted and no permission must have been granted for this to happen.

If you as a landowner are aware of members of the public straying away from a public right of way, or using a route that is not designated as a right of way, it is strongly recommended that you complete a Statutory Declaration in order to protect your land.

If you are a tenant and are aware of these happenings, we recommend that you notify your landlord so that they can take action if they so wish. In fact, there is often a clause in the tenancy agreement compelling tenants to notify the landlord and hence such action is imperative.
