Right To Light Compensation
A right to light arises if someone has enjoyed uninterrupted light through an opening for more than 20 years. The light will have been ‘enjoyed’ openly, without consent, without threat and without interruption. In some instances, new buildings can enjoy a right to light by way of an implied or express grant.
