Light Rights

'Ancient Lights' is a British property rights law dating back to 1663. It stated that if a window providing occupants of tenement natural light for a period of twenty years unimpeded, then neighbouring properties could not be granted permission to build or landscape in a manner that might obscure said ancient window, but the onus was on the owners to mark it as such.
