Case summary last updated at 08/01/2020 15:49 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Crow v Wood

Question was whether the right to have one’s neighbour maintain their fence to keep in livestock was a valid easement. CA said it could. 
 
Lord Denning MR: It has long been the courts’ practice to recognise a right to require the owner of adjoining land to keep the boundary fence in repair, even though it requires the spending of money by one party.
