Understanding the ‘bundle’ of rights that come with your real estate property can be pretty tricky. And, while no two parcels are precisely alike, there are many similarities between them. Essentially, by purchasing a package of real estate you intend to use for any one of several purposes (including residential, commercial, or farming), you get to utilize certain inherent rights by working through your local government authority. If you wish to build on the land, either single-handedly or via professional assistance, then permissions must be granted and regulations followed.
More than just the home itself, the land comes with additional rights that need to be considered before the building begins. You will access natural resources such as water, minerals, and plants. The ‘minerals’ aspect is the portion of this set of rights that most interests mineral exploration companies, they are allowed to explore your property for them, which could mean drilling holes or digging trenches. To do so legally, you must be informed before their work begins and be shown their proposed plans.
Bundles of rights are collections of rights
A ‘bundle of rights refers to a grouping or a collection of something else, usually transferred as a single unit. When it comes to real estate law and property rights, the bundle of rights included with your land can be complex, but they are typical for residential zones in most areas, even if mining claims have been applied for on that land before you arrived there.
In any case, you must remember that prior owners may have had those exploration permissions approved already by local government authorities directly. Your parcel will now carry those same rights forward as long as no further changes come about from new ownerships or events such as zoning changes.
What is included in the bundle of rights?
Real estate law typically refers to a set of legal rules and customs governing the purchase, sale, leasing, mortgaging, transfer, and possession of real property. While each country’s laws may vary slightly, most countries share many common elements in their real estate property rights concept. One key area is the bundle of rights that come with owning or possessing real estate.
These are not limited to just what you can do on your land, they also include specific natural resources that exist beyond it. The following sections explain these rights more fully so you can determine what particular perks come along with buying into that parcel of land you’ve had an eye on for some time now.
“Bundle of rights” rules & regulations
As the name suggests, the term ‘bundle of rights refers to a set of individual rights associated with one piece of property. Often these bundles of rights are transferred along with ownership, so there’s no confusion about who is responsible for what on it. This is an important distinction because although you may own the land itself, this does not give you carte blanche authority to do whatever you like on it.
Depending on its location and purpose (residential, commercial, or otherwise), local government authorities will have their list of permissions that must be followed before beginning any construction work or using your parcel in another way. While most areas treat each type of real estate property equally under this principle, some countries offer certain perks only to specific property types such as farms or mines.
Approached by a company before purchasing land
In some cases, you may have been approached by a company even before buying your parcel of land if it contains a resource that interests them, meaning they were aware of its presence via past research or learning from previous contacts with others who owned portions there already. If no one has contacted you, but you fear a company might try soon, then it’s wise to contact your local government authority first and ask if their permission is required.
