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.
