Shooting rights?

Postby shootist » Thu May 28, 2015 6:02 pm

Following a debate elsewhere on shooting law I got to wondering about shooting rights on land. Are they something that is attached to all land, are they specifically added to title, who decides and how?

If they're not specified in the deeds that you have them, then don't assume that you do.
Likewise fishing rights, mineral rights and probably various other rights that I can't offhand think of.

flying rights. What height above a piece of land becomes something that you need to be licensed to do?

How about sticking to the topic, at least in the first reply or two?

My belief would be the opposite of this. I bought a property where the shooting rights were excluded but this may have been belt and braces. Of course it excludes anything which goes to the Crown.

You are allowed to "sport" over your own land. Sporting rights can though be severed by granting them to someone else.

They can be a legal interest.

Whilst you would need to be careful to be sure, they are part of the land unless severed. If you have land which might enjoy something useful (as opposed to worming), you really need to know. Historically much land will have the rights granted elsewhere - usually reserved when land is sold off from an estate.
