What You Get with the Land

Sometimes purchasers like to know what they actually get with the land when they close a real estate deal.

So, here’s the list:

Every conveyance of land, unless an exception is specially made therein, includes:

• all houses,
• outhouses,
• edifices,
• barns,
• stables,
• yards,
• gardens,
• orchards,
• commons,
• trees,
• woods,
• underwoods,
• mounds,
• fences,
• hedges,
• ditches,
• ways,
• waters,
• watercourses,
• lights,
• liberties,
• privileges,
• easements,
• profits,
• commodities,
• emoluments,
• hereditaments and
• appurtenances

whatsoever to such land belonging or in anywise appertaining, or with such land demised, held, used, occupied and enjoyed or taken or known as part or parcel thereof, and,

if the conveyance purports to convey an estate in fee simple, also the reversion and reversions, remainder and remainders, yearly and other rents, issues and profits of the same land and of every part and parcel thereof, and all the estate, right, title, interest, inheritance, use, trust, property, profit, possession, claim and demand whatsoever of the grantor into, out of or upon the same land, and every part and parcel thereof, with their and every of their appurtenances.

That was set out in the Conveyancing and Law of Property Act. See section 15.
