Easements and covenants are of practical importance to a large number of landowners. An easement is a right enjoyed by one landowner over the land of another (including rights of way for access and access to light, air and water), both plots usually being in close proximity. Covenants are contractual in origin and bind only the party who gave the promise and are enforceable only by the party who received it. With land these can include promises to build a fence or not to build above a certain height.A Profit a prendre gives the holder the right to take something from another's land. Many profits concern ancient but not necessarily obsolete practices, such as pannage. Some, such as the right to fish or shoot on the land of another, can be of great commercial value.Recent Land Registry figures suggest that at least 65 per cent of freehold titles are subject to one or more easements and 79 per cent are subject to one or more restrictive covenants. These rights can be fundamental to the enjoyment of property. Their effective operation is also crucial to the successful development of land for housing.Easements and covenants remain vitally important in the twenty-first century and the Commission proposes to modernise and simplify the law, removing anomalies, inconsistencies and unnecessary complications where they exist. Private homeowners, businesses and organisations that own property, those who deal with and develop land, and professional advisers would benefit greatly if the law was more accessible and easier to operate. Reform would also offer net benefits to all those involved in the conveyancing process, including lay persons, solicitors, licensed conveyancers, and Land Registry.

"Each year thousands of separating couples apply to the courts for financial orders. Sometimes these orders are not complied with. The law of enforcement of family financial orders is a complicated area, contained in a range of legislation and court rules. It can then be difficult for parties, particularly litigants in person, to recover the money they are owed. This can lead to significant hardship both for the parties and for their children. The key aim of this project is to make this difficult area of law more effective, efficient and accessible, and to strike a fairer balance between the interests of both parties. To this end, the Law Commission recommends wide-ranging reform of the law of enforcement of family financial orders."-- Publisher website.

"In September 2014, HM Treasury asked the Law Commission to review the Bills of Sale Acts. Our 2016 report recommends that the Bills of Sale Acts should be repealed and replaced with modern legislation that imposes fewer burdens on lenders and provides more protection for borrowers. We are now consulting on draft clauses, which are intended to form part of the Goods Mortgages Bill announced by the government in the Queen’s speech in June 2017. Our hope is that the Bill will be suitable for the special Parliamentary procedure for uncontroversial Law Commission Bills."-- Provided by publisher.

"The project was a review of the Mental Capacity Act and the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS). The DoLS aim to protect people who lack mental capacity, but who need to be deprived of liberty so they can be given care and treatment in a hospital or care home. If a person’s right to liberty needs to be infringed in other settings, an authorisation must be obtained from the Court of Protection. The DoLS have been criticised since they were introduced for being overly complex and excessively bureaucratic. In March 2014, a House of Lords Select Committee published a detailed report concluding that the DoLS were 'not fit for purpose' and recommended that they be replaced."-- Publisher's website.

"The focus of this project is on the effectiveness of those criminal law provisions that protect official information. It is important to realise that not all information held by government is protected by the criminal law. As this report demonstratess, criminalisation is limited to the unauthorised disclosure of those categories of information that have implications for the national interest. It also limited to those working within or alongside government who have been trained in how to handle sensitive information."-- Provided by publisher.

"In July 2016 the 13th Programme of Law Reform consultation was launched to seek the public’s views on the issues most in need of reform. The consultation received the largest ever volume of responses with over 1,300 submissions covering 220 different topics. From those suggestions, in December 2017, the Commissioners chose 14 topics for their new Programme. All have an acknowledgement from Government that there is a serious intention to reform the law in the relevant area. The projects in the 13th Programme of Law Reform are: a modern framework for disposing of the dead; administrative review; automated vehicles; electronic signatures; employment law hearing structures; intermediated securities; modernising trust law for a global Britain; museum collections; registered land and chancel repair liability; residential leasehold; simplifying the immigration rules; smart contracts; surrogacy; and unfair terms in residential leasehold."-- Publisher's website.
