Grant of right-of-way
What is meant by Grant of right-of-way
The Grant of right-of-way deed is made between the grantor and the grantee. In this Grant of right-of-way the grantor owns the land which is described and the grantee owns the adjoining land. Then in exchange for a sum which the grantee pays the grantor, the grantor will allow the grantee and his or her heirs free use of the passage whose dimensions are also stated in the deed. It states that they can use this passage as an exit as well as entrance way to their property. This benefit extends not only to the grantee and their heirs but to their tenants as well and this can be used by them in addition to the use which the grantor and their heirs and their tenants will have as well.
The grantee and their heirs as well as their tenants will use this common property with the grantor and his or her heirs and will use and whatever repairs and maintenance will need to be done as well as all charges and expenses will be shared exactly in half between the grantor and the grantors heirs as well as the grantee and the grantees heirs and that will include all sorts of work including the paving, the repairing, amending and cleansing of the alleys as well the passageway.
This deed is witnessed and signed by both the grantor as well as the grantee and therefore there is no confusion or ambiguity between what needs to be done for the passage way and who will be paying for it and in what proportion.
