Owners realise the value of their views and jealously protect them. However, views can seldom be protected, save if the Title Deed or Site Development Plan contains a condition which limits the height of the property of your neighbours. Needless to say, owners embark on an emotional roller coaster, negotiating with neighbours to try to reach an agreement to save their views, with the exchange of real rights at the forefront of these negotiations. In many instances the verbal agreements reached are not reduced to writing and signed. Sad to say, these oral agreements are not worth the exchange of words and the consensus reached.
