Business, Legal & Accounting Glossary
Property that carries a right to use a portion of a neighbouring property. For example, property that benefits from a beach access trail across another property is the dominant tenement.
The land or property whose owner is able to enforce a Servitude over another property. For example, if the owner of land X has a right of access (an Easement) over then land of Y, then X’s land is the ‘dominant tenement’ in this relationship, and Y’s is ‘servient’. The term does not denote a master-servant relationship in any broader sense, and properties can be — and usually are — dominant and servient at the same time in respect of different rights.
