Hi, I'm doing a 2 lot strata subdivision to create a vacant lot (my existing house will be on one of the lots). Both the electricity and water pipe to my house will need to run through the new lot (which I'm going to sell off), under the driveway. I thought that I'll need to create an easement across the other lot for these services, but my surveyor is saying that I should just create a strip of common land. I'm concerned that if i do that there will be implications for the driveway in that strip being on common land, ie the owners of both lots will be responsible to maintain it (it only goes to one lot). Does anyone know why it wouldn't be easier/better to create an easement? The same applies to sewer pipe that runs across from my lot through the other, would that be better as an 'easement' rather than a strip of common land? Thanks, Seb.
