Psst, want to download a video about servitudes?

Scots Law News has previously expressed its support for the use of photographs within judgments.  Often the understanding of a case in property law particularly would benefit from clear understanding of the factual background.

One such case is Moncrieff v Jamieson 2008 SC (HL) 1  which considered the servitude of car parking and where the House of Lords decision turned, to some extent, on the “particular and unusual circumstances” ([per Lord Hope at para 36, see also Lord Scott at para 63, Lord Rodger at para 98 and Lord Neuberger at para 124). 

For those wishing to appreciate these particular and unusual circumstances the solicitors for the Moncrieffs, Messrs Inksters, have prepared a video presentation on-line.  The video includes aerial photographs of the site, a potted history of the case, and interviews with IG Mitchell QC, and Mr Moncrieff – outside the House of Lords on the day of the decision.
