Right Of Egress

DEFINITION of 'Right Of Egress'

The legal right to exit or leave a property. Right of egress is usually used in conjunction with the right of ingress, which means the legal right to enter a property. The right of egress is most commonly found in real estate law.

BREAKING DOWN 'Right Of Egress'

The rights of ingress and egress apply regardless of the type of property - owner-occupied, rental or land.

For example, ingress and egress easements may govern the use of a shared driveway or the use of a private road to reach one's property.
