Profits

Our Profits Expertise

A profit à prendre enables a person to take something off another person’s land, for example,  minerals, crops or game.

The law of profits is related to the law of easements but there are important differences. For instance a profit may exist “in gross” i.e. with no requirement for neighbouring land, whereas in the law of easements there must always be a dominant tenement.

Linked to Tanfield’s stand-out practice in matters relating to Easements, members provide both advocacy and advice on the closely-linked field of Profits.

With strength at all levels, whether examining documents of title, deeds and plans, drafting claims or providing representation in disputes, the barristers at Tanfield are known for their expertise in this area.

What sets Tanfield apart is the excellent reputation the Set has for its cross-disciplinary approach, drawing on expertise in fields such as Easements, Public & Private Rights of Way and Land Registration.  This innovative approach ensures that Tanfield’s members are consistently called on to represent clients in some of the most high profile and notable cases at all levels of court.
