PROFIT A PRENDRE

A Profit a Prendre is an interest in land and gives a person the right to enter another’s land and take something from the land such as crops, timber, pasture, fish, game or minerals. The thing taken must be part of the land and be capable of being owned. A Profit cannot include water.

In other words, Profits a Prendre are usually rights to take from another person’s land something on the land itself or the wild animals existing on it that is the property of the landowner.

Examples of Profit a Prendre include rights to:

  • graze stock
  • plant and harvest crops
  • quarry stone, sand or gravel, or
  • take timber

A Profit can be Appurtenant or in Gross. An Appurtenant Profit can only be used by the owner of the adjacent property. It does not exist in its own right and is annexed to the ownership of other land. Conversely, a Profit in Gross is an interest in land that can be bought and sold separately from the ownership of the land itself. It exists in its own right and can be sold, purchased, assigned or otherwise transferred by its owner separately from the land over which the right arises (it exists independently of land).

A Profit a Prendre in Gross may be created by:

  • Deed of Grant
  • Common Law Prescription, or
  • Under the Doctrine of Lost Modern Grant (which presupposes a grant that cannot now be produced).

Please note that a Profit a Prendre in Gross cannot be acquired under the provisions of the Prescription Act 1832.

Prior to the LRA 2002, Profits a Prendre in Gross were not capable of registration separately from land. However, since 13 October 2003 a Profit a Prendre in Gross can be registered with its own title.

To be capable of registration under its own title, a Profit a Prendre in Gross must:

  • exist in its own right and not be annexed to the ownership of other land
  • be held in fee simple or for a term of years with more than seven years unexpired
  • be granted by deed, acquired by prescription at common law or acquired under the doctrine of lost modern grant
  • be in respect of something which is capable of ownership (it cannot be in respect of water as water is not owned by anyone)

The Legal Stop is a straightforward online business using information technology for the public good. We offer a wide range of downloadable contract templates and online legal services to businesses, start-ups, and individuals. In our portfolio of document templates we also have a Deed of Grant – Profit a Prendre in Gross to be used in order to grant the following rights:

  • profit in gross to sow, harvest and take arable crops

 

 

LONE WORKING: OVERVIEW

A general overview on lone workers and the legal implications employers face with lone working.

Several jobs can require people to work alone. Lone workers are people who work by themselves without close or direct supervision.

There is no specific law dealing with lone working. However, all health and safety legislation apply equally to lone workers.

The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 states that employers have a duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees; the Act also applies to lone workers.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers to make suitable and sufficient assessments of risks to their employees. Employers are also required to make arrangements for the health and safety of employees by effective planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review. If the risk assessment shows that it is not possible for the work to be done safely by a lone worker, then other arrangements should be put in place.

Unfortunately employers often forget their responsibilities to lone workers, in particular in respect of issues such as risk assessment, welfare provision, recording of injuries, first aid provision and consultation.

Many of the hazards that lone workers face are similar to those faced by other workers. However, the risks involved may be greater because the worker is on their own. Thus, protection of lone workers must start with a full risk assessment of the work that lone workers do. Risk assessment should help employers decide on the right level of supervision.

The HSE, in its guidance on lone working, stresses that the risks must be assessed and controlled and says that employers of lone workers should:

  • involve staff or their representatives when undertaking the required risk assessment process;
  • take steps to check control measures are in place (examples of control measures include instruction, training, supervision and issuing protective equipment);
  • review risk assessments annually or, when there has been a significant change in working practice;
  • when a risk assessment shows it is not possible for the work to be conducted safely by a lone worker, address that risk by, for example, making arrangements to provide help or back-up; and
  • where a lone worker is working at another employer’s workplace, that employer should inform the lone worker’s employer of any risks and the required control measures.

Employers generally think that lone workers are covered by the same policies that apply to other employees. This assumption is wrong because even if many of the risks faced by lone workers are the same as those faced by other workers, lone workers also face increased and additional risk.

It is paramount for employers to have a Lone Working Policy in place in order to comply with their legal obligations. The purpose of a well drafted Lone Working Policy is to ensure that there are adequate systems in place to ensure the health, safety and welfare of lone workers in order to reduce the risks of lone working as far as is reasonably possible and practicable. It should set out the steps employers should take in order to comply with their legal duties to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. It should also provide the framework for identifying the possible risks faced by lone workers and outlines the procedure that must be followed to minimize or pre-empt those risks in order to comply with The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
