Definition : Servitude - Site

In property law, the site identifies the matter or property to which a right relates. For example, the site of a servitude (right of way) represents the specific location on a property where the right of way is exercised. The owner of the servient land cannot do anything to reduce the exercise of the servitude or to make it less convenient. However, he may, at his own expense, provided if he has an interest in doing so, transfer the site of the servitude to another place where its exercise will be no less convenient to the owner of the dominant land.
