This is my first post and hope I am posting in the correct section.
I would like to ask if anybody has experience or knowledge of the validity of a deed of easement signed and sealed, pursuant to S.68 of the CROW Act 2000 (a statutory easement).
The compensation sum was paid before S.68 was repealed.
I was working abroad at the time and was only able to sign the deed 5 months later.
I did not know that S.68 had been repealed on 1.10.2006, although I am sure that the other party (local authority) would have known.
The deed contains a restrictive covenant which wouldn't apply if I had simply applied for a prescriptive easement following the repeal of S.68.
I am hoping that the deed is void/redundant, and any help would be gratefully received.
