Rights to Light

Rights to light is a negative easement whereby one party may prevent another from interfering with the light enjoyed by their property.

A right to light is enforceable irrespective of whether a development has planning permission. Daylight & Sunlight UK can provide expert advice where a development is proposed, which may affect the right to light of neighbouring properties. Acting for both developers and neighbouring owners previously with successful results, we are able to offer tailored advice and analyses to suit our clients’ requirements.
