Grant a Right After a Stable Was Conveyed to a Laundry

In Hohman v. Rochester Swiss Laundry Co. (125 Misc 584 [Sup Ct, Monroe County 1925]), a grant of a right of way provided that it should terminate if the premises, then occupied as a stable for horses, should cease to be used for a general carting business. The property was subsequently conveyed to a company operating a laundry and thereafter no longer used as a stable and for the business of carting. Under such circumstances it was held that "the condition under which the grant of the right of way was made has been broken and the grant under its terms has ceased and become void" (at 586).
