Recent Development in the Law of Easements: The Nigerian Context, Constraints and Prospects.
The nature of easement makes it a limited form of legal and equitable rights which fall short of rights of ownership or possession. And its essential characteristics consist inn conditions under which the right is validated and effective. The condition include that a right would not take effect as an easement if it is of no benefit to the dominant land , and if it imposes an obligation on the servient land owner to expend money. However, recent development in the law of easements in leading common law jurisdiction such as the United Kingdom has led to the recognition of recreational facilities taking effect as an easements; a right to use sporting and recreational facilities taking effect as an easement. The development is justified as the common law needs to constantly evolve in tune with the current realities in an ever changing world. But the extent to which the new form of easement is recognised and enforceable may depend on peculiar jurisdictional contexts in the common law world. In the Nigerian context. This paper will examine the recognition and enforceability of recreational easements. The paper will in addition discuss the constraints for such recognition and enforceability.
