Commentary on Sections
Part 7: Servitudes
Section 79: Prohibition on creation of negative servitude
322.Negative servitudes are uncommon and thought to be confined to restrictions on building, especially for the protection of light or prospect. This sort of obligation is more typically imposed as a real burden. Section 79 prevents the creation of negative servitudes on or after the appointed day. Obligations of this type will have to be created as (negative) real burdens in the future: see section 2(1)(b). All servitudes in the future will therefore be positive in nature.
