Definition : Servitude - Site

In property law, the site identifies the matter or property to upon which a right is applicable. For example, the site of a servitude (right) of right way represents the specific location, on land where the right of way is exercised. In no case may the owner of the servient land do anything that would tend to diminish the exercise of the servitude or to render it less convenient. However, he may, at his own expense, provided he has an interest in doing so, transfer the site of the servitude to another place where its exercise will be no less as convenient to the owner of the dominant land.
